Microwave nut brittle.

This goes out to my sister and her love of the microwave. I sill love you. As you still love my goat cheese loving self...

Microwave Peanut brittle

1.) Mix the following ingredients in a microwave safe bowl:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
2.) Microwave 4 minutes 
3.) Add
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
4.) Microwave 2 1/2 minutes 

5.) Add:
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda until color intensifies(a minute or two).
6.)Pour over salted peanuts/cashews/almonds on a parchment and greased baking sheet.

7.) Cool 15 minutes and when hard break into pieces, wrap up in cute little baggies, and spread some Christmas cheer.

You could also gift it like the picture above via Martha Stewart. Wrap up the baking sheet and tie with a mini hammer to break. Brittle doesn't get any cuter than that! And If you are having wet rainy weather like we are in Southern California, wait until you have a dry day. This will not harden up in wet weather....trust me I found out the hard way.

This post just cracked me up! I love the idea of attaching a little hammer to some nut brittle. I'll have to remember that for next year. Happy New Year to you.
