I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Peanut Brittle

This is not a recipe that you want to do with kids at your feet. The candy gets much to hot, and they could easily get a bad burn. Once it's cooled they could help break it into pieces.


*1 1/2 cups peanuts, cashews or peans (or mix them)
*1 cup white sugar
*1/2 cup light corn syrup
*1/4 teaspoon salt
*1 tablespoon butter
*1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
*1 teaspoon baking soda

~Grease a cookie sheet.
~In a large glass bowl, mix peanuts, sugar, corn syrup & salt.
~Microwave on high for 6-8 minutes, until mixture is bubbly.
~Stir in butter & vanilla.
~Cook another 2-3 minutes.
~Quickly stir in the baking soda. Mixture will become foamy.
~Pour immediately onto the greased baking sheet.
~Place a piece of parchment paper of peanut mixture and roll out mixture thin.
~Remove parchment paper right away.
~Let cool for 1/2 hour.
~Break into pieces, and store in an airtight container.
