Easy Peasy Peanut Brittle Recipe


  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups shelled nuts, such as walnuts, hazelnuts, or peanuts
  • 1 cup shredded coconut, lightly toasted

Lightly butter a cookie sheet and set aside.

Melt the sugar in a heavy saucepan over medium heat (about 15 minutes). Stir in the butter and lower the temperature. Cook until the color becomes amber.

Remove from heat immediately and stir in vanilla, nuts and coconut.

Pour mixture into the cookie sheet and spread to 1/3-inch thickness using the back of a wooden spoon.

After the brittle has completely cooled, loosen it from the sheet and break it into pieces.

What's even better is that it can be stored for a month, so why not make a double batch of this peanut brittle recipe!?
