    Total fail for me. Didn’t have enough liquid to make the brittle. Peanuts all crumbled to crumbs. Nothing like in the picture. I followed recipe to a T. Total waste of ingredients 😕

    Tastes great although I think I forgot to use reverse when I added the chilli and salt - so it's rather flat! Made with mixed nuts. Will try again - as mine doesn't look anything like the picture.

    I've successfully kept it in a sealed bag or container for weeks at room temperature. Only thing to watch out for is humidity making it sticky as sugar is hydroscopic...ie attracts moisture.Glasses

  • I had two attempts at making

    Submitted by Amy M on 22. December 2015 - 20:57.

    I had two attempts at making this. The first attempt ended up crumbling apart. The peanuts grinded down at the end when I put the salt/chilli in on reverse speed 5 and there didnt seem to be enough beer/sugar mixture to hold it all together.

    The second attempt was slightly better, I made a little more beer/sugar mixture and put the salt/chilli in at step 5, but with only 30 seconds to go on the timer. There still wasnt enough beer/sugar mixture to hold it all together. The outside was ok, but the inside just crumbled away. At least some of it was salvagable though.

    Not quite sure why this isnt working for me.

    This recipe is dangerously good.......I made two batches one with peanuts and the second one with almonds and cashews and both were delicious........I also lowered the temp of my oven and kept them in for longer so they were super crunchy........these didn't last long in my house!!!

  • I've made this several times

    Submitted by SarahBrisbane on 2. January 2015 - 17:17.

    I've made this several times now and everyone who has tried it has loved it. I also had the problem of it being too gooey in the middle if the edges were cooked perfectly. This time I spread it over two baking trays with two separate bits on each tray (ie 4 separate bits). It was beautifully cooked and crunchy all over. I cooked it for 12 minutes but 10 would have been perfect if I had wanted a more chewy consistency.

    Submitted by jaybel87 on 25. December 2014 - 17:02.

    This is a terrific recipe. I made it as a secret Santa gift and it was a real hit and very simple to make. I cooked it for a little longer. I thought it would be ok to use a non stick tray but this was a bad idea and you should definitely use baking paper as the recipe suggests. Will be making regularly!

    Submitted by superquilter55 on 25. December 2014 - 09:41.

    I have already commented on this recipe but have now made it myself and was a little disappointed because at Step 6 my beautiful whole nuts got pulverised!  I will make it again but will only mix with spatula the chilli and salt in. The flavour was still great but didn't look good to give for presents which I had intended. It was also very sticky. This won't put me off making another batch though as I had to eat all this myself!!

    my advice is to make two batches, because the first wont make it very far!  Also next time I will chop less in the last step.

    I also appreciate such clear instructions. Thank you!!!!!!

    Soooooooooo good!!!  had to send hubby out for more peanuts... Need some more batches for Christmas gifts.

     

    Spread it nice and thin, cooked until golden in the middle.  Had a few burnt bits at the edge, just snapped them off.  Not "beery" at all. Not overly sweet like most peanut brittles.  And that chilli is just the right amount of kick at the end.

     

    delish!! Great recipe!!
