peanut brittle

Does anyone have a recipe for peanut brittle using only 3 ingredients? I used to have the recipe and I lost all my recipes when my house burned. It's cooked in an 8" iron skillett.

It is so easy and so good. I would love to have this to make gifts for the holidays.

Re: peanut brittle

found this one not sure if it is any good, i have never made peanut brittle


1 lb. salted peanuts
4 c. sugar
1/4 tsp. baking soda

Sprinkle salted peanuts in a greased cookie pan 15 1/2 x 10 1/2 x 1 inch.  Melt sugar in
an 11 or 12 inch fry pan over medium heat, stirring constantly.  (If an electric fry pan
is used set control at 375 degrees.)  When the sugar becomes a light brown syrup, stir in
baking soda and quickly pour it over the peanuts.  Cool.  Break brittle in pieces.
Yields 3 pounds.

Re: peanut brittle

I found a recipe in the Limited Addition of AN AMISH CHRISTMAS, that Kevin is offering until Dec. 15th. It is a great buy.  Here is the recipe: PEANUT BRITTLE:  3 cups of white sugar, 1 1/4 cups of water, 1 1/2 cups white corn syrup,2 cups of unsalted peanuts.   Stir until mixture comes to a boil. Cook until it comes to a very hard ball when dropped into water. Add 2 cups of unsalted peanuts. Then cool.  Hope this will work for you.
