Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a keeper! This is a keeper!! My husband likes this recipe better than the one I make from scratch. The first time I made this I burned the syrup, so the next time I made it I only cooked it for 4 minutes then when I added the butter and peanuts I cooked it for 3 1/2 minutes. It was great!! This peanut brittle is not as hard as the other ones and we like it better. I did not even make the chocolate dip for this recipe and don't think it really needs it. Have shared this recipe around to friends and it now is in my recipe file with all my other Christmas candy to make every year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a must for Christmas for the past several years. This is a must for Christmas for the past several years. So delicious that it's hard to believe how quick and easy it is to make. This is one brittle that's easy on the teeth and still crisp and crunchy. Be careful when pouring-it is very hot out of the microwave. I accidentally dropped a couple nuts on my fingers when pouring and got some nice blisters. I agree with another, shaking the pan to thin out is so much easier than trying to spread. I used the choc/pb once, but we decided we like it best plain the old fashioned way. A must try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this without the chocolate and it was easy and delicious. I made this without the chocolate and it was easy and delicious. I only microwaved the sugar/syrup for 4 mins since 5 seemed too long and only used about 1 1/2 cups of peanuts and that was plenty! Spreading the mix at the end doesn't really work, so instead I just wobbled the pan around to thin out the candy. I'm already planning a second batch!
