Peanut Brittle (Mixed Nut Brittle) - Home Sweet Home Bake Along (19/100)


Peanut brittle, such a fun throwback to the days when tuck shops could sell refined sugar and nuts. Like Mrs B, I adapted this recipe to make it more than just peanuts - I used a blend of hazelnuts, almonds, salted peanuts and walnut pieces.


The salted peanuts provided a wonderful contrast to the sweetness of the caramel. I had a little trouble getting the caramel evenly out of the pan and over all of the nuts before it started to cool to much and solidified in the pan.


It did ooze about generally, though, so only a few nuts were not "glued" properly, but some of my difficulties might be the varied sizes of my nuts, rather than the more uniform size of all peanuts.


It's jolly more-ish, I must say.

I adore peanut brittle! I am literally addicted to the stuff. Which is why I never make the stuff – very sensible. Seeing this though I am terribly tempted! #CookBlogShare

It is rather delicious, and nuts are supposed to be healthy!
