Roasted Garlic Brittle

Updated: Jul 16, 2021

A classic, sweet toffee treat with a big twist!

TIME: 5 minutes prep, 25–30 minutes total YIELD: approximately 4 cups RECOMMENDED VARIETY: Belarus


  • coconut oil

  • 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


  1. Lightly grease a baking sheet with coconut oil.

  2. Measure and prepare all ingredients and set out in order of use.

  3. 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.)

  4. Microwave on high for 3½ minutes, stirring after the first 2 minutes.

  5. Add peanuts and roasted garlic puree to the sugar/syrup mixture and microwave on high for another 4 minutes, stirring at 2 minute intervals.

  6. Add vanilla and butter, stir, then return to microwave for another 1 minute on high.

  7. Remove from microwave and stir in baking soda. The mixture will bubble up quickly, hence the 8 cup container!

  8. Quickly pour brittle mixture onto prepared baking sheet and cool in fridge (or in another cool location) for 15 minutes.

  9. Break apart and store in airtight container.
