Peanut brittle. In the microwave. Without a candy thermometer.
I’m out. And I’m so all over this easy-peasy peanut brittle recipe.
Talk about revolutionizing candy making, this peanut brittle is as simple as pushing buttons on a microwave, stirring, pushing buttons, stirring. You get the picture.
I’ll be honest, halfway through, I was sure this was not going to work. But I had already invested about 96 seconds into the process and didn’t want to give up at that point. I’m all about looking at the big picture and staying in for the long haul.
And you know? It worked. Beautifully. Like magic peanut brittle that comes out of nowhere. My kids munched on it all evening long. Even Brian was amazed. His comment after he came in from work: “Wow, candy making today? That must have taken a lot of time.” Which, in hindsight, I’m not sure exactly what he meant, but I’m taking it as a compliment instead of an observation about how my stay-at-home body had time to make candy but somehow can’t seem to find the time to, er, clean the toilets regularly (no judging, no judging!).
Listen, I’ll take homemade candy any day over clean toilets, which happen to be highly overrated, in case you are curious. Toilets aside (seriously, how did we get on that subject?), no one has to know this peanut brittle takes minutes to make and you’ll look like a superstar in the process.
