“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.”

Original recipe yields 2 pounds

Directions

  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.

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 recipe.
