Microwave Peanut Brittle

15 mins (prep 5, cooking 10)
7 ingredients
12-20 servings
This puts store bought peanut brittle to shame. I prefer to use the skinless peanuts because I think the skins are bitter. The amount listed below for the peanuts is if you're using Virginia peanuts. If you're using Spanish peanuts then reduce the amount of peanuts to 1 1/2 cups. Be sure to watch the candy carefully the first time you make it.
