  • Spray rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Bring sugar, corn syrup and water to boil in medium saucepan on medium heat. Continue to cook, without stirring, 30 min. or until mixture registers 300°F when tested with candy thermometer, occasionally brushing down side of pan with pastry brush dipped in cold water.
  • Remove pan from heat. Immediately add remaining ingredients; stir until peanut butter is completely melted. Pour onto prepared baking sheet. Use greased spatula to spread mixture into thin even layer on pan. Cool completely.
  • Break brittle into bite-size pieces to serve.

How to Store

Store candy in airtight container in a cool dark place for up to 1 week before serving.


Since the peanut brittle syrup will be very hot, use a wooden spoon to stir in the peanut butter and nuts.
