7 Minute Peanut Brittle


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup salted chopped peanuts
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda


  • Mix corn syrup and sugar in a microwave safe bowl.
  • Microwave for 4 minutes.
  • Spray a rubber spatula or spoon with cooking spray and stir in peanuts.
  • Microwave for 3 minutes.
  • Meanwhile spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • As soon as the peanut mixture is done quickly stir in baking soda and vanilla and using a rubber spatula coated in cooking spray pour onto a baking sheet and spread as fast as you can before it hardens.
  • Once it hardens and cools, use a butter knife and roughly chop into smaller pieces.
  • Store in a covered container.


I like to wrap mine in decorative saran wrap or baggies, tie with ribbon, and give as gifts.
