What do you do on a cold and snowy February afternoon?
You make peanut brittle.
Then you package it up (well, most of it) and take it to your cute little
neighbor for her 88th birthday.
Because she loves it and she asked for it.
And when you're 88 I guess you can eat whatever you want to.
Happy Birthday Loreine!
1 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsp light corn syrup
2 cups shelled peanuts
Melt butter in heavy pan or non stick frying pan. Add sugar, corn syrup and peanuts.
Cook and stir over medium heat until temperature reaches 300 degrees
on your candy thermometer.
Pour brittle onto a parchment paper covered cookie sheet .
Cool and then break into pieces.
Try not to eat it all or you might not make it to 88.
Then again you might.
