Printer-Friendly Version


Chunk Full of Nuts Peanut Brittle

Every Christmas, my grandmother created this delicious treat to add to the stockings for all of the children...and adults alike.  It's a traditional sweet treat that will disappear like magic.



1 tablespoon butter

7 1/4 ounces canned salted peanuts

1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)

2 1/3 cups sugar




Melt butter in a small saucepan over a very low heat. Add peanuts and salt; allow to warm. Place sugar in a large thick skillet over medium heat. Stir continuously until sugar is caramelized into a golden brown syrup. Quickly stir peanuts and salt mixture into syrup. Pour onto a large buttered surface at once. With a big spoon, stretch and pull candy into thin sheet. Cool and break into pieces.


Yield:  1-1/2 pounds brittle.


Merry Christmas
