My Grandmother is the sweetest person I have ever met. As a child she would help me with my pronunciation and spelling by working with me with her flash cards. She was always smiling and most of the time doing what she loved, cooking. I came across my mothers and grandmothers recipe collection while visiting with my family in New Jersey.
My Father let me take most of their collections. While looking through them I came across this recipe for peanut brittle, something I have been unable to conquer.While the chef at Chops I would make a chocolate peanut brittle and peanut butter ice cream pie but I misplaced the recipe and have not been able to find one that is equal until I came across my grandmothers recipe.
This recipe is so simple and it really only takes 10 minutes, really! The only change I made is I only microwaved the second time for 2 minutes instead of the 3-5 minutes called for.
The brittle can keep for a couple of weeks along as it is held in an airtight container.
