RECIPE 3 stars, RESULTS 5 stars. I am giving this recipe 3 stars because I think that it is MUCH better with salted peanuts, and I think that it should be noted that it's very important to work quickly! Like a previous reviewer mentioned, the caramels set very quickly after melting! The juxtaposition of sweet caramel and salted peanuts is the key to good peanut brittle. You can whip this recipe up in a snap, and it's delicous! In a nutshell: 1. Use SALTED, ROASTED PEANUTS 2. Work fast! I hope everyone enjoys this as much as we did!


So easy and a very yummy recipe. My two-year-old could help me with this recipe versus the other method (heating over the stove all the different ingredients). I actually prefer the salted roasted peanuts- I like the sweet and salty flavor.


This was an okay peanut brittle. It's certainly easy enough, and I made it exactly as written. I agree with the previous reviewer that salted peanuts would probably be better, or maybe just add some salt to this recipe. This doesn't make much - I coated the entire cookie sheet with cooking spray, and this recipe covered only maybe 1/4th of the sheet. Also, you have to work quickly after the caramels are melted - they harden quickly.
