SUPER EASY MICROWAVE PEANUT BRITTLE RECIPE

SUPER EASY MICROWAVE PEANUT BRITTLE RECIPE

This Microwave Peanut Brittle Recipe is the easiest peanut butter recipe you will ever fix. 

I will never fix peanut brittle again over a hot stove. This microwave peanut brittle turned out great the first time I made it. It was so easy to make.

SUPER EASY MICROWAVE PEANUT BRITTLE RECIPE

This Microwave Peanut Brittle Recipe is very special to me for a couple of reasons.

First, this Microwave Peanut Brittle Recipe was given to me by a Recipes for our Daily Bread follower.  

She took the time not only to leave me a comment but also e-mail me several of her favorite easy recipes to try.  This Microwave Peanut Brittle is from Mrs. Nadine B. from Oklahoma.   Mrs. Nadine is a wonderful Christian who worked 50 years in the Editorial Department of Oral Robert University.  She not only worked 50 years of service but she typed 130 words per minute.  She earned her nick name “flying fingers.”  She still does freelance transcription today.  Nadine enjoys cooking for her daughter and her two grandsons.  Since e-mailing me this peanut brittle recipe she has sent me several more recipes.  I look forward to trying all of them, especially since this Microwave Peanut Brittle was the easiest Peanut Brittle I have ever made.  This Peanut Brittle impressed me with not only how easy it was to make using my microwave but how it tasted like my Old Fashion Peanut Brittle.

Second, my father’s birthday was December 9th.  Even though he passed away over 20 years ago, I still miss him. 

So on his birthday, I make peanut brittle.  He loved peanut brittle.  I am pretty sure it was his favorite candy.  It may sound silly, but when I am making his favorite recipes or eating them, it helps me remember the good times we enjoyed.  If you have lost a loved one, it can be tough during the holiday season.   Take a chance to celebrate the good memories you had with your loved one. Try making their favorite candy.  I do not want my children growing up and not knowing anything about their grandfather who was an incredibly generous, funny, and kind man.  My heart goes out to everyone who is missing someone during this Christmas season.

  1. I made this today and it seemed to work ..although it is hard but sticky ..like “pull a filling out” sticky….did I cook too long? Or not long enough (everything is dissolved)?…just trying to trouble shoot the problem

    • Joanne,

      Thank you for stopping by Recipes for our Daily Bread and leaving me a comment about my Microwave Peanut Brittle. My oldest son made this peanut brittle today too. It came out good. This peanut brittle has to be made quickly and the timer on the microwave has to be exactly 3 1/2 minutes each time. It is sticky because it did not get hot enough. I am thinking your microwave must not get quite as hot as mine. Next time, try 15 to 30 seconds longer but be really quickly stirring in the adding the soda, salt and vanilla.

      Thank you for stopping by and supporting Recipes for our Daily Bread.
      Blessings,
      Diane

  2. I was really looking forward to making this for the first time! I followed recipe to the tee! My brittle never got hard! It’s very chewy! 🙁

    • Nancy,

      I am sorry I am just getting back to you but I wanted to make my microwave peanut brittle again this year. I make it every year and it always turns out well. I made it again today. I believe your brittle did not get hard because it did not get hot enough. The brittle did not cook enough. If you followed the recipe to a tee, it must be that your microwave does not get that hot. I have researched that Microwaves vary in their cooking temperatures. If it was sticky, it needed another minute to cook.

      Thank you for stopping by Recipes for our Daily Bread. I am sorry your brittle did not get hard.

      I will make this note on my recipe page.

      HAVE A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS!
      BLESSINGS,

    I’d love to try the recipe, but I can’t seem to find a link or the actual recipe. Please help!
    Thanks!

    • Jennifer,

      I just check my Microwave Peanut Brittle post to see what happened to the recipe. I have NO IDEA. It is up and running now. You can even print it out. I am so sorry it did not work the first time. This peanut brittle is so easy to make and really good. I hope you enjoy it.

      Blessings,

    • Karen,

      I have no idea what happened to the ziplist. I fixed it so the Microwave Peanut Brittle is showing up correctly now. I am truly sorry it did not work. I hope you enjoy this super easy recipe to make peanut brittle.

  4. It’s Deonna from the Child at Heart blog! Thank you so much for linking up at the Merriest Blog Hop! I can’t wait to see all of your holiday ideas this month! I love the name of your blog! It’s sweet to honor your dad by making this every year. You never quit missing those you love 🙂 I really like peanut brittle and this sounds like something I could actually do. Thanks to your Oklahoma reader!

    • Deonna,

      I really appreciate you taking the time to stop by my blog. I enjoyed your blog hop and so glad I found you. I am now following you and will visit often. I am also following your social medias. I am so thrilled to find another Christian blogger. God has a plan for all of us and I like to help others figure out that plan.
      We are kind of neighbors. I am in Arkansas. My husband actually works in the state of Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas, and Louisiana. We visit with him some in the summer. I hope you were not effected by the horrible weather this past spring.
      Blessings,

    • Sherry,

      Thank you so much for sharing about your father. He was so YOUNG! My father was 58 years old which is also very young. No matter how long they have been gone they will always be missed. Today, is my father’s actual birthday. I truly wish my kids could have known their grandfather. I love to cook! I also love to bake my father’s favorite dishes. It helps me remember him on his special occasions.

  5. I can’t wait to try this! My family’s nuts about nuts! Thanks for sharing about your loss. We lost our Christmas person at Christmas in 1980. My father loved the holidays. He would start planning and cooking from thanksgiving on thru the new year. He was only 50 when he passed and it took a long time to feel any happiness. But God has put joy in our hearts once again. Merry Christmas Diane!

    • Maureen,

      This Microwave Peanut Brittle is so easy to make. I really like making this peanut brittle and talking to my kids about the grandfather they never knew. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I am sorry to hear about your father also. My father was 58 when he passed away. Both of our dad’s was wayyyyyyyy to young!!!
      BUT I know God is in control and He had and has a plan for all of us.

  6. I’ve always been afraid to make candy since I failed the past couple of times I tried. This recipe looks like something I can handle. I love peanut brittle! Can’t wait to try it!

    • Jessica,

      I have made peanut brittle many times on the stove. It is tricky to pull the candy off the stove as soon as it reaches hard crack stage. I could not believe this peanut brittle did not even need a candy thermometer. Be sure to check the Watts on your microwave.
