What’s the one snack that grandma always gave you with a story? Did you get told about how she couldn’t enjoy peanut brittle like she used to and gave you a candy like peanut brittle and some money? Homemade peanut brittle is that snack that is often packed into trail mixes and road trip packs. The sweet, crunchy and hilariously sticky treat is really quick to put together and great for those holiday gift tins with cookies.
You’ll be making your own sweet syrup that will harden and make your brittle easy to pack and divide into pieces. It’s similar to making caramel, so be aware that it is very hot and you do not want it on you. You can also infuse the syrup with herbs like rosemary or thyme if you want a creative savoury twist on your snack. Not only does it work as a great gift, but it’s also great to crumble on some desserts like ice cream or for bake sales.
