Last updated 3/24/2021 at 9:36am

Classic recipes sometimes scare me off. Too many steps, too many risks for failure and too many pans to clean. No wonder I was thrilled years ago when my mom shared her easy technique for making peanut brittle. It all comes together in the microwave.

Reduced to these simple steps without need for a candy thermometer, your family will enjoy the salty-sweet confection in no time at all. Just be sure to spread out the hot mixture thinly on a warm pan to ensure the "brittleness" when it cools.


1 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup light corn syrup

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
