Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 1 1/2 C. sugar
  • 1 1/2 C. corn syrup
  • 1/2 C. hot water
  • 1 1/2 C. raw peanuts
  • 1 1/2 t. baking soda
  1. Add sugar, corn syrup and water to a large saucepan. Cook until it threads, about 230°F.
  2. Add the. raw peanuts
  3. Cook just to under 300°F. Add the baking soda. Mixture will foam and turn color. Stir about 1 minute.
  4. Have ready a piece of buttered foil on a cookie sheet. (or a marble slab-buttered) Pour out quickly being very careful not to touch the candy mixture.
  5. It is very hot. I like it thin so I use 2 buttered forks and pull the peanut brittle from the edges to thin it some.
