Have you ever made peanut brittle? It's pretty easy and sooo yummy.
It does have a few calories.
But it's totally worth it.
Bag it up in a nice little cellophane bag, tie a cute ribbon around it, and you've got a great gift
for a neighbor or friend.
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 tbsp light corn syrup
2 cups peanuts (or any nuts will do)
Melt butter in a large, heavy pan over high heat. Add the rest of the
ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and stir constantly
until the temperature reaches 300 degrees on a candy thermometer.
Quickly pour candy on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet (with sides).
Let cool then break apart.
