Microwave Almond Brittle

Microwave Almond Brittle
When I first saw this recipe it was called Quick and Easy Peanut Brittle (Microwave)
But I didn't have any peanuts in the house so I used roasted almonds!
I was a little sceptical about making this recipe because I never thought you could make great brittle in the microwave! But I was so wrong! This was just as good as any other brittle, it was just quicker and easier! No candy thermometer needed!
 I couldn't make this fast enough! It was disappearing extremely quick!
 Good thing it's a microwave recipe because I just kept making more!
Pssst...most of the time, I was the one making it disappear so fast!
My family didn't get a chance to try the brittle until the 3rd batch!

1 1/2 c roasted almonds
1 c white sugar
1/2 c light corn syrup
1 pinch of salt
1 Tbsp butter
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In glass microwavable bowl mix together peanuts, sugar, corn syrup and salt.
Microwave on high 2- 3 minutes. Stir and microwave again for another 2- 3 minutes.
Then add in butter and vanilla, and return to microwave for another 2 minutes.
Remove from microwave and quickly stir in baking soda. Mixture will look slightly foamy. Pour on to prepared cookie sheet and spread quickly with the back of the spoon. Allow it to cool, then break into pieces.

  1. wow! sounds great and easy! nice post Lillian!

  2. My mother-in-law has been making this for years and it is so easy and quick to make. The great thing is, I've never had a batch not turn out....most people I share the creation of this with is always amazed how it crunches and isn't sticky. A recipe you'll want to have this Fall during the holidays!

    1. Yes, I turns out perfect everytime! But I eat it all year!

  3. Can I omit the syrup or substitute with same amount of honey?

    1. Hi Irene...I've never tried it with honey. I guess it could work with that. Please let me know how you like it with the honey. Thanks =D
