Peanut Brittle

Peanut Brittle


  • 1/2 c butter
  • 1/2 c cane sugar
  • 1/2 c brown rice syrup
  • 1/4 c honey
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 c nuts: peanuts, mixed nuts, cashews etc.


  1. Prepare a cookie sheet by greasing it with butter or using a silpat. You’ll need something to pour the peanut brittle onto to cool, and things move fast after it cooks!
  2. In a pot on your stovetop add the butter, cane sugar, brown rice syrup, honey & salt.
  3. Cook at a rolling boil until the color turns darker. For me it happened about 5 minutes into the cooking process. Stir constantly.
  4. Add the vanilla and nuts, stir to combine.
  5. Pour onto prepared cookie sheet and spread it out with your spatula.
  6. Let it cool and break it apart!
  7. Store it with wax paper between the layers if you stack it, or it will stick together.
