Old-Fashioned Peanut Brittle

No recipe image available.Old-fashioned peanut brittle, made pure and simple—with butter, sugar and peanuts—just as it was in the days of yore.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 pound butter
2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups peanuts

Cooking Directions:

  1. Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat.
  2. Place sugar in a large skillet over medium heat and add the melted butter. Stir continuously until the sugar caramelizes into a gold syrup. Quickly stir in peanuts.
  3. Pour onto a large buttered surface. With a big spoon, stretch and pull the candy into a thin sheet. Cool then break into pieces.

Makes about 2 dozen pieces.
