This classic peanut brittle recipe is easy to make, full of buttery peanut flavor, and is great for packaging up as holiday gifts.
Refrain from storing the brittle in the refrigerator, next to the stove, or in direct sunlight. This will degrade the quality and shorten the shelf life.
**Use a heatproof silicone spatula or wooden spoon. If you are unsure if your silicone spatula is heatproof, use a wooden spoon instead. Avoid using plastic or nylon utensils for stirring the brittle because they will melt.
