Ingredients

  • 132 g / 4.66 oz sugar
  • 179 g / 6.31 oz light corn syrup
  • 188 g / 6.63 oz roasted salted peanuts
  • 2 g / .07 oz baking soda

Method

  1. Cook the sugar, corn syrup, and peanuts until the mixture starts to caramelize, around 325°F / 160°C.
  2. Add the baking soda, stirring quickly. Pour onto a nonstick rubber mat and spread out with an offset spatula until it is about 1 cm / .4 in thick.
  3. After it cools, break apart into desired pieces (about 5 cm / 2 in). Reserve in an airtight container with silica gel packets to prevent the brittle from absorbing moisture.
