Lil Peanut and More

Today   Lacy Sunshine showcases... "Lil Peanut" Brittle  Sticky  Wings.


There is  something   so  irresistible  about  peanut  brittle.   Both, my  digi and  the  candy.  She is one of my   new  favorites and  well  not a  Christmas   goes by   without  making batches of  brittle.

Here  are the  wonderful different  and unique  design  team  members inspirations which   showcase  this lil nut (wink).

First  is Sammibug's

 


And  next we  have Aletha's.
 

It's  interesting  to  see  the   same image  used  yet   two  totally  different   works of  art.  Both  are  amazing.  

So Lil Peanut and  myself would love to  share with  you  our  Peanut  Brittle   Recipe....

INGREDIENTS

1 1/2
teaspoons baking soda
1
teaspoon water
1
teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2
cups sugar
1
cup water
1
cup light corn syrup
3
tablespoons butter or margarine
1
pound shelled unroasted peanuts



DIRECTIONS
  1. Grease a large cookie sheet. Set aside.
  2. In a heavy 2 quart saucepan, over medium heat, bring to a boil sugar, corn syrup, salt, and water. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Stir in peanuts. Set candy thermometer in place, and continue cooking. Stir frequently until temperature reaches 300 degrees F (150 degrees C), or until a small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water separates into hard and brittle threads.
  3. Remove from heat; immediately stir in butter and baking soda; pour at once onto cookie sheet. With 2 forks, lift and pull peanut mixture into rectangle about 14x12 inches; cool. Snap candy into pieces. And  Enjoy!  

Next .... I   like to  share with  you   a  new digi stamp  which is  available in  my  shop.... 

Meet  Emily... Snow  Princess.






Please  note..... All my  digi stamps  are  now  instantly  downloadable.

Have a beautiful  day ... until next time,
Heather
