Peanut Brittle Extravaganza

Last week, I decided to try to make peanut brittle. So, of course, I asked Osiyyah if he wanted to help and he enthusiastically answered with a "Yeah!" So, off into the kitchen we went to try to make homemade peanut brittle.

Osiyyah thoroughly enjoys helping make stuff in the kitchen. Or helping with anything for that matter :). But, he can be a little messy sometimes.

Like this picture. He was having fun dumping the baking soda all over the counter, haha! No biggie, we'll just clean it up.

He got a kick out of being able to stir the sugars while they melted :). He always likes someome to take a picture of what he's doing too!

Getting the peanuts in the measuring cup.

The finished product before it cooled. It didn't turn out like it was supposed to. Oh well, the kids had fun scrapping the gooey peanut "brittle" off the pan, since it still tasted good.

Making peanut brittle is fun.

And the baking soda must have been so tempting.

Looks like perhaps you didn't get the brittle mixture to the right temperature. A candy thermometer helps, but if you just boil the mixture until it's about the same color as a piece of caramel (like Brach's) that should be about right. It takes a while to get to that stage; don't jump the gun and stop too soon. Homemade peanut brittle is delicious! Good luck!
