You know those moments when you’re craving a super crunchy snack to satisfy your sweet tooth? The sweet stuff doesn’t always have to be creamy or chewy–it’s not like salty has the monopoly on snacks that have the crunch you’re looking for!
We have the perfect treat for you, and the best news is that it takes only a few ingredients and can be thrown together in a little over an hour! Interested? Grab the following and meet us in the kitchen!
What You’ll Need:
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup light karo syrup
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 cups raw peanuts
- ¼ cup butter
- 1½ tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
What You’ll Do:Start by heating your water up in a pot over medium heat. Add in the karo syrup and the sugar and stir constantly until the sugar has fully dissolved. Once this mixture comes to a boil, add in peanuts and stir once again. It will now start to thicken.
Continuing to stir, toss in the rest of the ingredients and watch as the mixture starts to froth and bubble as it cooks into a delicious thick caramel consistency. After a few minutes, spread the mixture out into a baking sheet and pop it into the fridge for 1-2 hours until hardened, then remove it and break apart. There you have it! Homemade peanut brittle perfect for curbing those crunch-cravings!
