Peanut Brittle

2017 Update: Due to a problem with Photobucket, see here, there will be a lot of recipes without photos. I will be slowly redoing the recipe pages, as best I can, but many other posts will be impossible to replace. I’m doing this in my own time, while continuing to update the blog with new recipes and posts. If you’d like to donate, any amount appreciated, you can do so here. The site will always be free, the recipes will never be locked behind a paywall, but this is a lot of additional work. I’m not demanding or begging, just putting it there so if you feel like repaying my hard work you have that option. I don’t make any money from the site, all that I do here is to help others, I couldn’t charge for that.

I had an old photo stashed away, apparently. Better late than never.


1 Cup/200g Sugar
1/4 Cup/60ml Water
1 Cup/150g Roasted Peanuts/Other Nuts
37g Butter, Chopped


1. Pour Peanuts over baking paper lined tray.

2. Dissolve Sugar in Water within a saucepan over medium heat.

3. Once sugar has dissolved, bring to a boil. Do not stir. Swirl the mixture till the colour of the syrup turns deep golden. Be careful not to burn the syrup. Should be slightly thick.

4. Immediately remove from heat, whisk in Butter. Quickly pour mixture over a tray lined with baking paper.

5. Leave to cool.
