“This is my third holiday season making this peanut brittle,” says justyummy. “I used to spend hours over the stove trying to get it right and it never turned out right. This is absolutely perfect!!!”

“Excellent,” according to JENNJOR. “So easy to make and is delicious! If you like your peanut brittle to be a little thicker, increase the baking soda to 1 1/2 teaspoons.”

“If I could give this 6 stars, I would,” raves D. English. “It is EXCELLENT! We made five batches and put them in a pretty container for a Christmas present. Be sure to tilt the cookie sheet to spread instead of spreading with a knife. Spreading with a knife destroys the crunchy texture.”
