Peanut Brittle

Nuts uncut


How easy is this recipe: two ingredients, one saucepan and one tray.

Peanut Brittle


200 g unsalted roasted peanuts

200 g granulated sugar


Line a baking tray with baking paper.

In a heavy based saucepan, place the sugar and cook over medium heat.  Shake the pan until the sugar has melted evenly into a golden caramel.

Working quickly ( the  caramel may burn if left too long) add the peanuts and stir with a wooden spoon.

Pour onto prepared tray, spread and flatten, then set aside to cool completely.

Cut the peanut brittle into small chunks using a sharp knife or use a rolling pin to break into pieces.


The original recipe from magazine September 2014  drizzled melted white chocolate and dark chocolate over the brittle.
