My mom's peanut brittle is the best in the west! I picked up on it after her passing so I am glad to carry this on to your readers! It's really a great recipe!

In heavy sauce pan bring to a boil:

1 cup of sugar

1 cup of white syrup

1 tablespoon of butter

Stir constantly!

Add 1 bag of raw peanuts and continue stirring while boiling 5 to 6 minutes until the syrup stuff starts looking tan-ish!

Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 1 teaspoon of baking soda and stir real fast! Pour onto a greased cookie sheet and let cool!


Thanks for letting me share this!

What is White Syrup? NEW
by: Angie from

Hi Muzzy,

I suspect that "white syrup" is probably referring to corn syrup or what we call in Australia as "glucose syrup." I don't know for certain, but that's my best guess.

Thanks so much for this delicious addition of Peanut Brittle. Of course, you can imagine that I will probably lay some chopped chocolate on the top before it cools. It would then melt nicely to spread across as a topping. Mmmmm. I love these old tried and true favorites. Thanks again!
