Microwave Peanut Brittle

Cook Time : 12min
Type of Prep : Microwave
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 cups salted peanuts
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 tsp. baking soda

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Butter large cookie sheet with sides, using unsalted butter; place cookie sheet in oven to melt butter and keep warm.
In 8-cup microwave safe glass measuring cup with a handle (this is important, so you don't burn yourself), combine brown sugar and syrup. Microwave, uncovered, on high power for 5 minutes. Remove from oven using an oven glove to protect your hand, and stir in peanuts.
Microwave this mixture, uncovered, for 5-7 minutes on high until syrup is bubbling all over the surface and the nuts are toasted. This syrup is very hot; be careful!!
Stir in the butter, then microwave uncovered for 1 more minute.
Remove from microwave and stir in baking soda quickly and thoroughly. The mixture will foam up (this is why you have to use a large measuring cup). Quickly pour the candy mixture over the melted butter in the warm pan and spread candy thinly with the back of a spoon. Cool candy for 1 hour at room temperature, until hard. Break into pieces and store in airtight container. Makes 2 pounds candy
