Sweet and Salty Popcorn Peanut Brittle

Sweet and Salty Popcorn Peanut Brittle

This candy is really sensitive to humidity, so make it only on dry, sunny days. Makes 4-6 servings.

Ingredients

  • 2 packs sweet and salty popcorn
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup dry-roasted or shelled raw peanuts
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

Preparation Method

  1. Butter a medium baking sheet lightly (do not line with wax or grease paper)
  2. Combine the sugar, light corn syrup, and salt in a large glass bowl. Microwave for 5 minutes, then add peanuts and microwave 4 more minutes. The mixture should be golden brown.
  3. Quickly stir in remaining ingredients, and pour onto your prepared pan using a spoon or spatula press down the mixture on the baking sheet
  4. Cool in the refrigerator until hard, and break into pieces. Store in an airtight container.
