Candy's Microwave Peanut Brittle
A microwave peanut brittle recipe from Candy.


  • l cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup white Karo syrup
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts
  • 1 tsp. margarine
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


Mix sugar, karo, and salt, cook in microwave for about 4 minutes, or just until amber colored. Remove from oven (it's very hot, be very careful) and add peanuts, cook about l to 2 minutes more, remove from oven add the margarine, baking soda, and vanilla all at once, and mix thoroughly, spread on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with Pam. Spread out on cookie sheet, ( this sets up quickly). Cool, then break into pieces and put in jar, with tight fitting lid. My microwave is 1000 watts, so I really don't leave my brittle in too long.I make this all the time, it is very easy and delicious. I usually take the margarine, baking soda, and vanilla and put it together in a bowl, so I can work quickly with it. I also spray my pan in advance, so that it will be ready for me.

More nuts, less time, Member LoralynnB

I used salted nuts, so I didn't add salt to the sugar mixture. I also doubled the amount of nuts. Yum
