Peanut Brittle is not something I make very often. I don’t know why I don’t make if often, it’s actually pretty simple. There is more margin for error in this recipe than in some of my other candy recipes.
This recipe is a favorite no matter where I serve it. It is also one of those food I try not to keep laying around the house as we eat far too much of it when it’s here.
There are recipes around the internet that do not require a candy thermometer, but this is not one of those. I cook mine until it reaches the hard crack stage. I prefer this method as it avoids the dreaded “too chewy” brittle.
