BIC: December-Holiday Treat


Every time Heidi does that thing she does I think “I want to join in too!”  But it’s harder than it looks, this blogging and trying to keep life together thing.

This time I thought I’d post a very simple recipe.  That’ll work, right?

Microwave Peanut Brittle
(demonstrated at the Alaska State Fair, Palmer, September 2009)

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup white Karo syrup
1 cup roasted peanuts
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon baking soda

  1. Butter a cookie sheet well.
  2. Dump sugar and Karo syrup in a big microwave safe bowl; microwave on High for 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Add peanuts; microwave 4 minutes.
  4. Add vanilla and butter; microwave 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Add baking soda and stir fast.  Pour into a buttered pan.  Let cool and break up.
