Rated 5 out of 5 by from I add the peanuts with the butter! I add the peanuts with the butter! The peanuts tasted better not so cooked. I still stirred the mixture at the peanut addition part but instead of adding the peanuts, I put it back into the microwave and cooked for 3 minutes, added the peanuts and finished following the recipe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dad is a peanut brittle lover so I finally made this recipe for him last week for Christmas. My dad is a peanut brittle lover so I finally made this recipe for him last week for Christmas. He said it's the best peanut brittle he's ever tasted. So did my husband and my grandpa. I'm not a huge fan of peanut brittle myself, but found I couldn't stay away from it either. It only takes about 10 minutes to actually make this and then let it cool. It's too easy and quick not to try. You won't be disappointed! By the way I ended up making this 4 times in the last week! :)

After many years of making peanut brittle the old fashioned way - an hour project on the stove top, stirring constantly for the last 30 minutes I was looking for an easier recipe. This was the first one I tried and it was delicious and so easy. I couldn't tell any difference in taste and it was so easy to make. Definely give it a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only amendment I would add is for people to be very cautious on time. The only amendment I would add is for people to be very cautious on time. My microwave must be stronger than the one this recipe was geared towards as I burned my first batch. I ended up lowering the time by one full minute on the first round and then only cooked it for 3 minutes on the "3 to 5 minute" part.

I make it every Christmas, coat it in chocolate, then give it away as gifts. It's gotten to the point where friends and family have come to expect it. Everybody loves it!

Try adding 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper and 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper to the recipe. Add additional spices at the same time as the baking soda is added. Enjoy!

I've used this recipe a LOT over the last 2 years, particularly at Christmas time and the results are always great. Everyone loves it and it's super easy to make. I've tried it with almonds and pecans too and these were also delicious.
