"The flavor is amazing! I thought 2 cups of peanuts was a bit too many for the amount of candy coating. Next time I will try it with just 1 cup and adjust from there. This recipe is my first success with peanut brittle, I've tried before but not with fantastic results like this!"- nvanseader

SassyBaker_Rhoda 1 month agoThank you, the last recipe I had for brittle left me sad and unfulfilled. Yours is the opposite of that, much gratitude.

Aydren01 2 years agoI am going to try this for Christmas. It sounds super easy. A couple of questions, is the baking soda necessary? What does it do?
Redz23 2 years agoGood flavour, used 2 cups peanuts and agree 1 1/2 would have been better to properly cover all the peanuts.
amandakrylo 2 years ago1 1/2 cups*
