Do you remember how excited you got when your parents took you to the local candy shop to purchase your favorite homemade candy? Well, that nostalgia is in full force with our old-fashioned recipe for Chocolate Dipped Peanut Brittle.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup dry-roasted or shelled raw peanuts
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 (2-ounce) chocolate candy coating squares
What To Do:
  1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a large microwave-safe glass bowl. Microwave at HIGH 5 minutes; add peanuts, and microwave 2 more minutes. Stir in butter, baking soda, and vanilla.
  2. Pour onto a buttered 10- x 15-inch rimmed baking sheet; shake pan to spread thinly. Cool until firm, and break into pieces.
  3. Melt the candy coating squares according to package directions; dip peanut brittle pieces into melted chocolate. Place on wax paper, and let harden. Store in an airtight container.
  • This recipe was tested in a 1000-watt microwave oven. If your oven wattage varies, your cook time may also vary. It's best to make Peanut Brittle on a sunny, dry day because it's sensitive to humidity. Store the candy in an airtight container to keep it crisp and crunchy-you don't want it sticky to the touch.
  • Put some in a fancy bag and tie it with a ribbon, and you've got the perfect homemade food gift!
