Bud Light Peanut Brittle...

Here's a tasty treat  that Rocks anytime.. tailgating...game time... holidays... a snack.  The Bud Light just kicks it up a yummy notch!!
It was my 1st time making Peanut Brittle. Ted used to make it with his Grandfather when he was young, so between the 2 of us, we got our ' Peanut Brittle' candy making on...

Bud Light Peanut Brittle
-1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
-1 teaspoon Bud Light
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-1 1/2 cups of sugar-1/2 cup of water & 1/2 cup of Bud Light
-1 cup of light corn syrup
-3 Tablespoons of butter /margarine
-2 cups (16 0z ) peanute
the norm is the Spanish peanuts, but honey roasted rocks for a sweeter taste.

*Candy thermometer - This is really important to have. Ted went all over ATX looking for one.
Finally found one at Bed Bath & Beyond! He said he should have gone there first.

Making the Bud Light Peanut Brittle:

-Heat oven to 200 degrees. Grease w/spray pam 2 cookie sheets. Put the cookie sheets in the oven to keep warm. This is important so the sticky candy will spread about 1/4 inch thick without setting up right away.

-Mix baking soda, 1 tsp of Bud Light and the vanilla and set it aside. Mix sugar, 1/2 cup of water, 1/2 cup of Bud Light and the corn syrup in a 3 -quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, about 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, once the candy thermometer reaches around 240 degrees it should be ready. Test it by dropping a small amount of the mixture into  VERY COLD water. It should form a ball in the water and go flat when it's taken out. Then it's ready. (The Bud Light seems to cause the mixture to boil over easier, than if you were using all water. So make sure you keep an eye out it.  Stir and lift the pan up a bit if it's looking like an eruption is going  to happen.  Be patient, it will turn into what you want! )

-Stir in butter/margarine and peanuts. Cook, about 13-15 minutes, stirring constantly. Once the candy thermometer reaches around 300 degrees  it should be ready. Test it by dropping a small amount of the mixture into VERY COLD water. It should separate into hard, brittle threads. Watch carefully so this doesn't burn. Once it's ready immediately take it off the heat.  Quickly stir in  the baking soda mixture until light and foamy. (The stirring stage to 300 with the peanuts will give your arm a work out. It will be thicker as you get closer to the 300 temp. Don't stop stirring. You can tag team the stirring like Ted & I did)

-Pour 1/2 of the candy mixture onto each  warm cookie sheet and quickly spread about 1/4 inch thick with buttered spatula. Let them cool completely for about an hour.  Then break into pieces and eat. Make sure you store in an airtight container, so it keeps a bit.

Ted was skeptical when we started, but the end result he enjoyed.. IT ROCKED in taste, crunch and chew! Bud Light creates another winner! Great for a football parties, holiday parties or just a snack cause you deserve it!

Enjoy your Bud Light Peanut Brittle.  Sure sign of a YUMMY GOOD TIME. Here we go!!
