"This is a peanut brittle I concocted from several different recipes I have seen and used for peanut brittle over the years. It's a fun twist on the standard brittle and tastes like a mix between hot cinnamon candies and peanut brittle."

  1. In a glass bowl, stir together the sugar, corn syrup, peanuts, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper until thoroughly blended. Microwave on high for 6 minutes. Slowly stir in the butter, and microwave an additional 30 seconds.
  2. Very carefully remove bowl from the microwave as the contents will be extremely hot. Gently stir in baking soda until mixture becomes light and foamy. Turn batter out onto a lightly oiled cookie sheet, scraping sides of bowl with a rubber spatula. Allow brittle to cool for 1 hour, then break into pieces.

This was good, and I love cinnamon and red hots; but I guess I am just used to regular flavored peanut brittle and prefer that.

Love this stuff! First made for 4th of July fireworks party, everyone loved it and asked for the recipe. It has a great flavor and the cayenne creeps up on ya!!!

Made this this evening. I did cut the amount of cayenne pepper in half, just in case. I really like it. It's a little different but makes an awesome addition to a candy tray. Thanks for the reci...

I tried and was great the first time, the second time I followed the same receipe and the brittle hardened but the outside was sticky like sugar

This does remind you somewhat of red hots. This was a nice twist on peanut brittle to try for a change.

I love this recipe! It is super easy nd any level of cook can make this!

This wasn't a hit at our house. We both prefer regular peanut brittle. Thanks anyway.
