  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. I haven’t had peanut brittle in years! Great summer treat for the kids! It is so going on our bucket list!

  5. 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!

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

  7. 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.

  8. Seriously?? Now you’re just making it too easy…I won’t be able to stop! πŸ˜‰

  9. Love how easy this is! I’m gonna have to try it for sure.

    I have an older microwave and I am not sure of the wattage. It also doesn’t have the option of setting a power level. What would you suggest for timing?
