Preparation Time: 20 min
Cooking Time: 15 min
Cooling Time: 30 min
Yields 10 servings (1/4 cup each)
- Wax or parchment paper
- nonstick cooking spray
- 1 tablespoon NESCAFÉ TASTER’S CHOICE 100% Pure Instant Coffee Granules
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 cup dry roasted peanuts
LINE large baking sheet or tray with wax paper; spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
COMBINE coffee granules, baking soda and salt in small bowl; set aside. Combine sugar, water and cream of tartar in medium, heavy-duty saucepan. Stir with wooden spoon over low heat until sugar is dissolved, occasionally brushing down sides of pan with wet pastry brush if needed.
BRING to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 6 minutes or until mixture is a light brown color. Remove from heat; add butter and coffee mixture (mixture will foam) and stir quickly to combine.
POUR mixture onto prepared baking sheet. Tilt sheet to spread mixture evenly (should spread to roughly 12 x 9-inches in diameter). Quickly sprinkle with peanuts. Cool completely (about 30 minutes). Break brittle into pieces. Store in airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
Cook’s Tip: For Chocolate Candy Brittle, replace coffee with 2 tablespoons NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Baking Cocoa.
