  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/4 cups salted roasted peanuts
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preparation:Β Begin by preheating your oven to 200 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with a minimum 1/2-inch rim with aluminum foil. Coat the foil with butter and warm it in the oven.
  2. Stovetop Alchemy:Β In a robust 2.5-quart or larger saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup, and water. Attach a candy thermometer to the side and bring the mixture to a boil, stirring frequently to dissolve the sugar. When it reaches a boil, introduce the roasted peanuts and continue cooking until the temperature hits 300 degrees, stirring diligently.
  3. Artful Finale:Β Retrieve the baking sheet from the oven. Swiftly remove the peanut brittle from heat and stir in the softened butter, baking soda, and vanilla. Exercise caution, as it will foam up, undergoing a delightful transformation in texture. Pour the caramel in a circular or linear fashion, tilting to spread the peanut brittle evenly. Allow the brittle to cool at room temperature before breaking it into exquisite, handcrafted pieces.


In each bite of this Symphony of Crunch, you’ll experience the rich, buttery notes entwined with the satisfying crunch of roasted peanuts. As you share these delectable morsels with loved ones, you’ll be creating not just a treat but a cherished memory, a testament to the art of homemade goodness that transcends time.
