Roasted Garlic Brittle
Updated: Jul 16
A classic, sweet toffee treat with a big twist!
TIME: 5 minutes prep, 25–30 minutes total YIELD: approximately 4 cups RECOMMENDED VARIETY: Belarus
1 cup granulated sugar
½ cup white corn syrup
1 cup unsalted peanuts, chopped slightly in a food processor
½ cup roasted garlic (4–6 bulbs of garlic, depending on size), pureed or mashed
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon plant butter that melts like regular butter
1 teaspoon baking soda
Lightly grease a baking sheet with coconut oil.
Measure and prepare all ingredients and set out in order of use.
In a microwave safe, glass dish with at least an 8-cup capacity, mix sugar and corn syrup well. (A dish with a handle works best.)
Microwave on high for 3½ minutes, stirring after the first 2 minutes.
Add peanuts and roasted garlic puree to the sugar/syrup mixture and microwave on high for another 4 minutes, stirring at 2 minute intervals.
Add vanilla and butter, stir, then return to microwave for another 1 minute on high.
Remove from microwave and stir in baking soda. The mixture will bubble up quickly, hence the 8 cup container!
Quickly pour brittle mixture onto prepared baking sheet and cool in fridge (or in another cool location) for 15 minutes.
Break apart and store in airtight container.
