Easy Microwavable Peanut Brittle


I have found a new love for peanut brittle!! I've always loved eating it, but this year, I thought I'd tackle the recipe and try making it myself.

I asked a friend about making peanut brittle and she was telling me about using a candy thermometer. I've never used one before in my baking, so I was hesitant to try peanut brittle. After some searching on the Internet, I found a recipe for easy microwavable peanut brittle. I had all the ingredients already at home, so I thought why not try this one?

Oh my!! Let me tell you that this is so delicious, so quick, and super easy!! I've already made two batches of it this past weekend! This is by no means healthy, but for the holidays, I think it's perfect! Everything in moderation. :)


Easy Microwavable Peanut Brittle
Ingredients:
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 tblsp. butter
1 cup salted & roasted peanuts (if you don't have salted ones, you can add 1/2 tsp. of salt to your mix)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp. of baking soda

Directions:
1. Start by heating your oven to the lowest setting. (mine is 170) Cover a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and place it in the oven to warm.

2. In a large glass bowl, mix the sugar and syrup. Once mixed well, put it in the microwave for 3 minutes. Stir again and microwave for an additional 3 minutes.

mix the sugar and corn syrup
out of the microwave
mix again
3. Stir in the butter and once melted, add the peanuts. (I forgot to take a picture of the peanuts in the bowl.) The butter will make the mixture start on sizzle a little. Mix well, it will start to get hard, and then microwave again for 2 minutes.

add the butter
it starts to get glossy looking
4. Stir in the vanilla extract, baking soda, and salt (if not using salted peanuts). Mix everything well.

adding vanilla extract & baking soda
5. Quickly pour the mixture onto the lined baking sheet. Try your best to spread the candy as flat as you can. Let the candy sit at room temperature until it hardens, about 30 minutes.


6. Once cooled, break into pieces, and store in an airtight container!!

Getting Back into the Swing of Things


It feels like eternity since I’ve written a post (since July), but I’m starting to feel like I have some type of schedule nowadays to where I can get back to my blog.

The summer was a busy time for us! We were trying to harvest, preserve, freeze, dry, and just put up as much as we could from our garden. Each month, as I got further along with my pregnancy with our third child, the less I felt like working on the garden….haha! A few times I just told Aaron “the heck with it and till it over!!” I did come to my senses after a day or two, and back to canning, freezing, and drying I went. I honestly didn’t get as much done as I would have liked to, but Aaron told me not to be too hard on myself considering I was pregnant.

peach vanilla jam

The month of September was just a blur to me. The kids were back in school, Carter was working with his rabbits daily to prepare for the fair, and I was heading to weekly doctor appointments in anticipation for our baby girl. And sadly, 4 days after Kaitlyn was here, Aaron's beloved grandfather passed away so unexpectedly. It was a crazy month!

Kaitlyn Faith made her appearance on Saturday, September 20th just three days before her big brother was going to show his rabbits. The labor and birth was almost a whole day’s worth as she took her time! Before Kaitlyn was here, I thought taking care of an infant would be easy for me since this was my third time, and I’d be able to continue with my normal schedule. I scheduled 8 weeks off after having Kaitlyn, and I was making lists of things I was hoping to get done while on leave.
 
 

Um…well I was totally wrong! Kaitlyn made me feel like a first time mother again. Oh man, did she! So far, Kaitlyn has proved to be the total opposite of both of my other children. Nothing I did for them as babies worked for Kaitlyn. She’s definitely a momma’s girl too! She likes to be with me ALL THE TIME, and now since she’s a little older, likes to keep me in her line of sight. J So you can guess how much I actually got done while on maternity leave - - - about 1/3 of my list with the blog getting left behind.
 
 
 

Kaitlyn is almost 3 months old, and we are figuring it out. She is truly a happy baby who loves to smile! I’ve gone back to work, and I really think that has helped even more with establishing a schedule for all of us, and for that I am grateful, exhausted, but grateful!
 
 
 
 
Our garden got tilled over at the end of September marking the end for this year. My plans of a fall garden didn’t get done, but I can always plan again for next fall! We finished up the meat chickens right before Kaitlyn’s birth, and we don’t have any baby rabbits as of right now. We just have our laying girls and rabbits that have daily chores, but not much. The cows have been moved down to Aaron’s grandparents’ farm and a new visitor (a bull!) will be staying with them until March.
 
 
It’s December, and I’m starting to feel less overwhelmed with day to day things and know that I can handle it - - - breathe and try to stay calm! J Looking back, I’m glad that we don’t have too much going on with the farm right now, as we’re all still working on getting back into the swing of things!

      The Homeacre Hop #86

      Welcome to The HomeAcre Hop!

      Share your homesteading, homemaking, and homeschooling posts!

      Good morning and I hope you're having a great week! Can you believe September is here? Summer is my favorite season, but I'm looking forward to cooling down, sweat shirt weather, bonfires, and warm hot chocolate! Also, the arrival of our baby girl!! :) I'm 3 weeks out until my due date, but the doctors think I will go early - let's hope so!!

      This will be my last Homeacre Hop for a while. I'm going to take some time to enjoy, relax, and get into a new routine of having 3 children. I'm afraid it's going to be crazy! But I do plan on being back, so don't worry!! :)

      In the meantime, we have a new Homeacre Hop Host to introduce! Her name is Tracy, and she blogs over at Our Simple Life. Here's a little about Tracy - My name is Tracy Fredrychowski and I live in South Carolina with my husband Craig and I blog at OurSimpleLifeSC. We have two grown children and three (almost four) grandchildren. We live on 20 acres in the middle of nowhere and the nearest town is 30 minutes away. We raise pigs, chickens, meat rabbits and try to be as self-sufficient as possible. We have a huge garden that keeps me busy all summer long that provides us with a full pantry every winter.

      I have a true passion for homemaking and homesteading the old-fashion way and try real hard to stay true to a very simple basic lifestyle. My family thinks we are nuts but we could not be happier.

      My husband works out of town each week, so I run our farm pretty much by myself during the week. Once the chores are done, and my body cannot take anymore farm or garden work I retreat to the house and spend my afternoon in my office. I have a background in web and graphic design, so I try and help my husband with our finances by taking on a few small design jobs to keep me busy during the week.

      Other than that I am just a very simple country girl who takes pride in my God-given role as a homemaker and help-mate to my husband.


      Please help me in welcoming her to our fantastic group, check out her page, and give her some love on Facebook!
