Spicy peanut brittle made with leftover Cowboy Candy (Candied Jalapenos) syrup.
Step by Step Directions
Grease a large baking sheet. Set aside.
In a heavy saucepan, bring Cowboy Candy syrup and corn syrup to a boil. Set candy thermometer in syrup and continue to boil, stirring occasionally, until it reaches the hard crack stage (300 degrees Fahrenheit) or until syrup dropped into ice water turns brittle.
Remove from heat and quickly add vanilla, baking soda, butter, and peanuts. Pour quickly onto a baking sheet and use 2 forks to stretch and pull brittle into a rectangle.
Once brittle is cool, break into pieces.
This recipe gets HOT. Be very careful when working with the hot syrup and brittle.
