Yes. Peanut Brittle in the microwave.

My mom makes this every year at Christmas. Then it occurred to me, it’s the perfect summer candy. No stovetop. No oven. No big mess. Just one bowl in the microwave! Ready in ten minutes!

    When I made my 7 Min Microwave Caramels, I reallllllly wanted to blog about the micro Peanut Brittle I make but never did and now seeing yours reminds me of how much I love the stuff. Yours is gorgeous!

    I make microwave brittle all the time. One thing I have to watch in the summer with brittle is the humidity. It’s turns all chewy and sticky instead of crispy and crunchy in just a few minutes if it’s left out. That’s probably not as much of a worry if you’re not in the South, though.

      Oh that’s so true! I keep it my dining room, which is usually more “chill” than the rest of the house because it doesn’t get direct sun!

    I need to try this, Aimee. I’m convinced that I am just not destined to make peanut brittle. I’ve failed horribly at making it every time I’ve tried (probably 4-5 times). The microwave version sounds like it just might work for me!

    I love peanut brittle but I’ve never tried making it myself- I just wouldn’t know where to begin! Although, with this fast and easy recipe I might just have to try it!

    I love peanut brittle but always forget about eating any time but Christmas. Good thing I can whip some up pretty darn quickly!

    No way, this is amazing! My mom is a nut (har har) for peanut brittle, and I’ve got to show this to her! Great recipe, Aimee.

    I’ve never made peanut brittle in the summer, but it makes perfect sense! I’m all for not heating up the house!

    Great idea! Peanut Brittle is something I’ve never bothered to try making, assuming that it would be too much effort. But now I have no excuse!
