Doug’s Peanut Brittle

This may be the easiest peanut brittle ever. No candy thermometer and no mess. The only cleaning is one measuring cup and one saucepan. You can do the whole thing in about 15 minutes, including the measuring.

You can get raw blanched peanuts in bulk at Sprouts. Whole Foods also has raw peanuts.

What You Need

2 cups unsalted (raw) peanuts
1 cup Karo syrup
1 cup sugar (white)
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon baking soda

Here's How

Add all ingredients (except baking soda) into a 2 quart sauce pan.  Boil over medium heat, stirring frequently.  Cook until golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add baking soda and stir well.  Pour on to foil and spread with a spoon.  Once hard and cool, break into pieces.
