This is my Mom’s recipe for peanut brittle.  It is really easy and doesn’t require a candy thermometer!  You make this brittle in the microwave!  I make this peanut brittle every year for Christmas, and everyone loves it. No one would ever know it was made in the microwave!  You will have to play with the cooking times and adjust them to your microwave.  It is also a good idea to have everything measured out before you start so the sugar doesn’t harden prematurely.
