Peanut Brittle is one of my favorite treats to eat. I don’t know why it’s only brought out during the holidays, though!
Here is a simple tutorial on how to make Homemade Peanut Brittle – and it’s much better than anything you can buy in the store. The best part is, it only takes 20 minutes to prepare. So let’s get started!
What You Will Need:
- Peanuts – 5.5 oz
- Jaggery/Brown Sugar – 5.5 oz
- Clarified Butter (Ghee) – 2 tbsp.
- Sugar – 2 tbsp.
Break the Jaggery into small pieces so that it will be easier to melt when you put it up the pan.
Then roast the peanuts, remove the cover and then crush the peanuts a little so that it is more flavorsome.
In a non-stick pan melt 2 tbsp. of clarified butter.
Then add the jaggery/brown sugar.
Keep on stirring it till it completely melts and turns light brown.
Be sure to stir it continuously so that the jaggery it does not burn.
Then add 2 tbsp. of sugar and continue stirring.
Once the mixture turns slightly brown add the roasted peanuts and cook for 2-3 minutes. Take it off the stove.
Grease a plate.
Pour the mixture into the plate.
Flatten out the entire mixture and then keep it to cool. Just be sure to cut the Peanut Brittle into desired size when it is slightly warm.
Then after it cools down it will be easier to break them down into pieces.
There you go, Homemade Peanut Brittle is ready to be eaten. If you are not so fond of nuts, you can add raisins into the jaggery. Enjoy!
