Microwave Peanut Brittle

My go-to Christmas recipe for gift-giving. I haven’t found anyone who doesn’t love it yet.

Microwave Peanut Brittle


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup salted peanuts
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda


  1. Combine sugar and light corn syrup in large microwave-safe bowl and heat on high 4 minutes. 

  2. Stir in peanuts and heat on high 3 minutes.

  3. Stir in butter & vanilla and heat on high 1 1/2 minutes.

  4. Add baking soda and stir, it will foam up, and pour onto baking sheet sprayed with nonstick spray lightly. Spread with knife. Let cool and break into pieces.

  5. *Depending on microwave, you may need to increase or decrease time-once you figure out your time on your microwave, based on it's power, change the time on your recipe to suit your microwave.
