This peanut brittle is a quick treat that you can give as a gift.
Substitute 500 ml (2 cups) roasted salted cashews or mixed nuts for the peanuts.
The peanut brittle will keep for 5 days in an airtight container at room temperature.
- Combine the butter, sugar and corn syrup in a saucepan. Melt over medium heat, stirring with a wooden spoon, until the mixture is smooth and bubbling. Cover and simmer for 1 minute.
- Add the peanuts and increase the heat to medium-high. Simmer uncovered for 5 minutes, stirring, until the peanuts are golden and the syrup is golden-brown.
- Pour the mixture in a thin layer on a large baking sheet covered with greased foil. Let cool. Once it has hardened, break into pieces.
