Happy Friday! Any plans for the weekend? Our weather isn’t supposed to be that great, so like Memorial Day Weekend, some of our plans are going out the window 🙁 But we’re making up for it with things that will be just as fun! And since they revolve around lots of surprises I’ve planned for Frank’s 40th birthday, I have to keep quiet for now…
I whipped up a quick batch of this to bring to work – it was gone before I blinked.
Forgot to take a pic after it was broken…oops! Oh and do yourself a favor…do NOT use wax paper, like I did (I was out of parchment)…you’ll end up peeling it off the brittle for about an hour after it’s cooled. Good times…
Microwave Peanut Brittle
from Plain Chicken
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup peanuts
1 teaspoon baking soda
Mix sugar and syrup together in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 5 minutes on high. Add butter, vanilla and nuts. Stir together. Microwave on high for 90 seconds.
Remove from microwave and quickly stir in baking soda. Immediately pour mixture onto parchment paper lined baking sheet (spray with cooking spray beforehand). Spread and let cool for one hour. Break into pieces.
