2 cupsÂ packed light brown sugar
1 cupÂ granulated sugar
3/4 cupÂ milk (I use skim)
1/2 cupÂ Bud Light (in place of water)
1/4 cupÂ corn syrup
1/8 tsp.Â salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1Â 1/2 cups pecan halves
Heat sugars, Bud Light, milk, corn syrup and salt to boiling in a large sauce pan or heavy 3-quart Dutch oven. (I don't have a D.O, so I used a good size saucepan).Â Reduce heat to medium. Cook, about 35- 45 minutes,Â stirring just the top foamy bubbles (usually 15 minutes without stirring, but the Bud Light causes the mixture to foam up, so you have to be patient as it cooks down. It was about 45 minutes for me.) Once your candy thermometer reaches 236 degress take off the heat. Let it cool, in the pan, without stirring for about an hour. The saucepan is cool to the touch.
Add vanilla and the pecan halves. Stir together until well mixed, but still has a shine to it.Â It will be very thick, so stirring will build those arm muscles. Drop mixture by the spoonfuls onto waxed paper. Let stand 1-2 hours, or until the candies are firm and no longer glossy and sticky.
Wrap each in wax paper or plastic warp, and store in an airtight container.
This is a perfect Halloween, holiday and anytime treat. :) Another Good Yummy Time w/ Bud Light!
Thought I would stick w/ the candy Bud Light vibe since Halloween is just around the corner, and the Holidays. This would work for all of these occasions and just because you want some Bud Light Toffee!
Bud Light Toffee:
-1 cup of sugar
-1 stick of butter/margarine
-1/4 cup Bud Light
-1/2-3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
-1/2-3/4 cup finely chopped pecans (flavored kind is yummy too)
*You will need to whip out the trusty candy thermometer. Also have a large cookie sheet out and ready for the hot toffee. Best to prep before hand, because you really have to watch/ constantly stir the mixture so it doesn't burn.
1.) Heat the sugar, margarine/butter and Bud Light to boiling in a 2 quart saucepan, stirring constantly; reduce the heat to medium or a bit lower. Be careful the heat isn't to high (Bud Light tends to make things boil over quicker). Cook, around 15Â minutes, still stirring constantly until you hit 300 degree temp on the candy thermometer. You can test a small amount of the mixture in very cold water. If it separates into hard brittle threads, it's ready.Â Be careful not to burn the mixture. Watch your heat and keep stirring. Another way to build arm muscles
2.) Once you hit 300 degrees, immediately pour the toffee onto an ungreased large cookie sheet. Spread the mixture about 1/4 inch thickness. Sprinkle w/ chocolate chips (white chocolate chips/ butterscotch..maybe a mixture..whatever makes you happy) , and let stand about 1 minute/or until the chips are completely softened. Spread the softened chocolate evenly over the toffee. Sprinkle w/ pecans.
3.) Let stand at room temperature about 1 hour. I also put it in the refrigerator another 10-15 minutes, so the chocolate was completelyÂ cool/set. Break into pieces and enjoy. If you have some left, store it in an airtight container.Â It should last for several days tasting FANTASTIC! :)
HHHMMM...Â Yummy Bud Light Toffee made another yummy good time in my kitchen. Try it in yours! :)
This makes a small batch. If you want a larger one, I would at least double the ingredients. :)
Bud Light-Toffee was definitely a sure sign of a Yummy Good Time! HERE WE GO!!

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 intoÂ 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.Â Stir and lift the pan up a bit if it's looking like an eruption is goingÂ to happen.Â 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 Â 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.Â Quickly stir inÂ 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 eachÂ warm cookie sheet and quickly spread about 1/4 inch thick with buttered spatula. Let them cool completely for about an hour.Â 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.Â Sure sign of a YUMMY GOOD TIME. Here we go!!

If you are planning on cheering on your favorite team, whether you've got the 'Burnt Orange' spirit, the Cowboys fever, or you're like me sticking w/ her Bears threw thick and thin, and this season looks like thin for right now.Â Well,Â the Cool thing is Bud Light is the official Beer of the NFL, so that helps a bit with the sting of the Bears loss, or helps elevate some Good Times when they win.Â Here's a yummy and easy recipe that goes perfect with 'Your Game' & 'Bud Light'...
Here's the 3 main ingredients, Bud Light, your favorite sauce and a pizza crust.
The rest you can add/ subtract whatever you like.
Here's what Ted & I did..
Bud Light Pizza:
- 1/4lb of pepperoni diced
-6 slices of bacon cooked and crumbled
- 1/2 lb of hamburger
-1/4 cup of onion
-Â 14 oz of tomato sauce/pizza sauce (Classico Pizza Sauce Rocks) -bottle of Bud Light
- 1 TB garlic powder, oregano, thyme, black pepper, Italian seasoning (whatever your favorite seasonings)
- 2 cups ofÂ your favorite cheese- mozzerella- a mixture.
-1/2 cup of parmesan cheese
- unbaked pizza crust/ or already prepared crust (just shorter cook time) You can use whatever toppings are your favorite.. chicken/pineapple... sausage and mushroom..whatever you like. It's your Bud Light Pizza!! Alfredo Sauce rather than tomato.. YUM!! Preheat oven to 450 uncooked pizza crust/ directions w/ the already prepared one (375 usually works out well) Â
-Fry the bacon inÂ a skillet and place the bacon on a paper towel. Once it's cooled break into pieces. Pour the grease out except for a little bit aboutÂ 1 TBs in the skillet and add the onions, pepperoni and the hamburger (90-10) and Bud Light. (you can add any extra seasoning to the meat mixture you like. I enjoy garlic/Italian seasoning). While the mixture is browning, put the tomato/pizza sauce in a sauce pan and add 1/2 cup of Bud Light w/ the seasonings if you are just using tomato sauce.. garlic,Â thyme, oreganoItalian seasoning Rocks too. If you use a season pizza sauce that works too. Â Let it simmer.Â Remove the meat mixture from the heat and the sauce once it's simmered for about 10 minutes.
- Time to make the BL Pizza:Â Have the crust on a pizza pan/or big cookie sheet and put the sauce on it.... the parmesan cheese.. the meat mixture/veggies if you got them.. then a bunch of cheese on top! Bake! Once the cheese is bubbly, Golden Brown, it's ready to cool a bit then EAT!!Â Â THIS IS AWESOME! Give it a try for your next 'Football Game', 'Party/Tailgater' or even a yummy quickÂ dinner. It Rocks!!
Just a couple of suggestions for the newest recipe I put to the Bud Light taste test-
Bud Light Cheesy Quiche....Â
2-cupsÂ Sharp Cheddar Cheese,Â shredded
2 Tbs flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp mustard (I used HoneyÂ Dejon)
4 eggs beaten (youÂ can do egg whites)
8 slices of bacon, crispy
1 cup of fat free milk
1/2 cup of Bud Light 1/4 cup of diced onion/or 1 TBs onionpowder
1 tspÂ garlic powder, orÂ 1/2 clove of garlic
1 tsp black pepper
-pie shell ( I used pillsbury, had a nice flake to it and tasty)
You can add moreÂ 1/2 cup more of your favorite meats,Â and/or veggies.Â Â Your favorite cheese instead of cheddar works too.Mix the cheese, flour and salt in a separate bowl.Â Â Beat the eggs, then add the milk, BudÂ Light crumbled bacon and onion.Â Mix together, then add the cheese mixture.Â Pour into an unbaked pie shellÂ . Bake at 350 for about 50 minutes or until golden brown on top and set/not liquid in the middle. Fork/knife testÂ it.
Let it coolÂ and serve.Â It's a tasty breakfast for dinner dish. You could make it the night before for a morning start tailgater.Â I liked it, but for me it needed a bit more kick. So the next time, I would add another meat, like a sausage, and some veggies like mushrooms. I would use a bit spicer cheese. But for a 1st time /Quiche for me it turned out yummy, you can taste the Bud Light kick, but it works in nicely.Â Of course, if you love HOT, you can add peppers and/or add some hot sauce when you serve it.
Give the Bud Light Quiche a try, with some of your favorites. Easy to make and very tasty!
