Here's something I haven't made in awhile. When a friend emailed asking for a microwave recipe I'd made in previous years, I realized hoooow good peanut brittle sounded.
Here's the recipe: The Peanut Van's microwave peanut brittle
What's really cool about this recipe is that you make it all in the microwave, and it is super easy if you've got an 8 cup Pyrex measuring cup (let's call it a bowl at this size!).
Since the nuts weren't salted, I just scooped up a jumbo pinch (maybe a tablespoon?) of kosher salt - and am loving how you sometimes get the hit of salt in the brittle.
Did yo notice that other bag with the peanuts? That's cashews. Sure, they're good for snacking on as is, and I was considering the skillet/rosemary treatment for them...but now? Maybe cashew brittle!
