Microwave peanut brittle is a sweet, salty, nutty treat. This holiday classic can be made in the microwave in just a few minutes. No candy thermometer required!
I’ve been on a mission this holiday season to make classic holiday candy in them microwave. Why? Because homemade candy is Achilles heel. Especially the kind you make on the stovetop! I’m sure some of you feel the same way.
Last year I shared microwave caramels, this year I tackled toffee and peanut brittle. There was a lot of trial and error involved, but I think I’ve nailed it! This brittle is sweet, crunchy, and loaded with roasted peanuts. It’s going to be a holiday favorite!
What do you need to make microwave peanut brittle?
- Corn syrup
- Baking Soda
I bet you have most of those on hand! You also need parchment paper or a silicone baking mat to spread the brittle on after it gets cooked. A lined quarter sheet pan is the perfect size.
