Peanut brittle

Eva is on a horse riding course until the end of the week, and consequently there is nothing sweet in the

In general I can live quite well with little sugar, but yesterday I suddenly got a serious sweet craving.

What I had in the pantry cupboard was sugar, spirulina powder (probably the yuckiest thing there is), lots
of different teas, and peanuts. It might be time that I get over my aversion to shopping and stock up...

After an online search I found a recipe for peanut brittle here. I used more peanuts and less sugar than in
this recipe, and it turned out fine.

You will need:

1 cup of sugar
1 cup of peanuts
1 pinch of salt
1/4 cup of water

Prepare a baking tray by covering it with baking paper.

Put the sugar and the water into a saucepan, add a pinch of salt and bring to the boil, without stirring.
Then stir occasionally until the mix has turned a golden amber color (takes about 10 minutes).
Stir in the cup of peanuts and spread immediately out onto the baking paper.

Let it cool down, brake into pieces and enjoy!

After my sugar craving was pacified, there was still a lot of brittle left over.
Perfect as hostess gifts, teachers gifts, or to give to your neighbors:

Have a gorgeous day!

Lots of love,
