9 minute Peanut Brittle


This brittle is perfect for your New Years Eve party… and will take 9 min from start to finish…more time for New Years fun!

Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.  ~Oprah Winfrey


  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup salted peanuts (although I like a little higher peanut ratio)
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda


  • Butter a cookie sheet. Combine sugar and corn syrup in a glass bowl and microwave on high 4 minutes. Lightly stir in peanuts and microwave on high 3.5 minutes more, then stir in butter and vanilla and microwave for 1.5¬† minutes.
  • Quickly stir in baking soda until light and foamy, it hardens quickly so be fast! Pour onto cookie sheet and spread thin (small holes will fill in). Cool completely and break into pieces and serve.

Note times may vary depending on the strength of your microwave, for my microwave (1000 watt I think) is was 4, 3 and 1 min. Don’t over cook it!
