How to make Buttery Peanut Brittle

  • Place heavy iron skillet (Note: This is the only utensil that should be used for this recipe.) over medium heat.
  • Put sugar and stir constantly until sugar melts and becomes syrupy. Don't let it turn dark brown.
  • Sugar will form some hard pieces before melting and possibly some lumps will not melt.
  • This is OK. Before sugar becomes too dark, add pounded peanuts and butter.
  • Stir thoroughly until nuts are coated. Then spread mixture on flat cookie surface or cookie sheet.
  • Flatten as thin as possible. Cool. Break into serving pieces.
