No candy thermometer necessary for this peanut brittle. Just eyeball when the syrup has hit the hard ball stage. You'll want to start making this anytime of the year rather than just the holidays!

  • 1 white sugar
  • 1/2 light corn syrup
  • 1/2 water
  • 1 baking soda
  • 1 raw Spanish peanuts
Container: Large saucepan
  • Lay out several sheets of foil to spoon the hot peanut brittle onto.
  • In a large saucepan mix the sugar, syrup, and water together.
  • Cook at a medium-high heat, stirring regularly.
  • Heat until the mixture has a hard ball consistency. You don't need a candy thermometer for this. When stirring, occasionally hold spoon above mixture, allowing it to drip off spoon. When mixture is at hard ball stage, it will "hair" off the spoon when falling, looking like a clear spider web.
  • Once mixture is at hard ball consistency, add raw peanuts. They will pop a little when added.
  • When mixture starts to turn a light clear-brown, as if it's starting to burn, remove from stove. Add soda and stir. Mixture will foam up.
  • Spoon out bite-size pieces onto unbuttered foil, stirring constantly between each couple of pieces.
  • Mixture can also be poured onto unbuttered foil as one big piece and broken into smaller pieces once cooled.
