    Immediately pour onto buttered/greased cookie sheet. Do not "spread" the mixture, as this breaks the bubbles (created by the baking soda). Instead, gently tip the pan back and forth to spread the candy out. This gives it a much lighter texture.







    Cool and break into pieces. Store airtight.

    (Times are based on a 1,000 watt microwave)

    If using an 800 watt microwave- cook 4 min the first time, 3 1/2 min the 2nd time, and 1 1/2 min the 3rd time.

      Thank you soooo much for this wonderful recipe. It is as good as the peanut brittle my sister used to buy for my dad. I made it with him in mind ( i like it too though) and hoped it woud be a success then I would make a batch just for him. It was so soft and delicious. I just made my second batch and am suprising my dad with it tomorrow. He loves peanut brittle!!
      I am wondering about doubling the recipe though. could I and just double the cook time? I'm afraid to try it though.

      No, DONT Double it, it wont come out, the Candy doesn't cook properly. Better off to make separate batches!

      I made this using broken up pecans. Pecans seem to cook faster than peanuts. Next time I will shift the cooking times so that I am cooking the sugar/syrup mixture 4.5 minutes and adding the pecans then cooking for 2 minutes. Also do not make this in a silicone collapsible bowl. The bowl melted and left little bits of silicone in the candy and had to toss the whole thing. Lesson learned. Used my big Corelle bowl. I crushed this up and used it on ice cream. Yummy.
