Hot Cinnamon Peanut Brittle

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

A fun twist on the original, this brittle tastes like a cross between hot cinnamon candies and traditional peanut brittle.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • In a glass bowl, stir together the sugar, corn syrup, peanuts, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper until thoroughly blended. Microwave on high for 6 minutes. Slowly stir in the butter, and microwave an additional 30 seconds.
  • Very carefully remove bowl from the microwave as the contents will be extremely hot. Gently stir in baking soda until mixture becomes light and foamy. Turn batter out onto a lightly oiled cookie sheet, scraping sides of bowl with a rubber spatula. Allow brittle to cool for 1 hour, then break into pieces.

  • Note:

    Use a bowl large enough to allow mixture to boil during cooking.
