- 1 cup coconut sugar
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup peanuts
- 6 tbsp natural peanut butter
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.
In a medium saucepan, combine the coconut sugar, maple syrup and water. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
Add the salt, then insert a candy thermometer. Cook the brittle without stirring until it reaches 250° F.
Add the peanuts and stir them into the mixture.
Continue cooking the candy until it reaches 290° F. The peanuts will start to smell roasted and the caramelized scent will begin to be more robust.
When it reaches this stage, turn off the heat and add the peanut butter. Stir quickly to combine and remove from the heat.
Add the baking soda and vanilla and stir well—the brittle will foam up.
Spread the candy out onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, to about 1/4 inch thick. Spread quickly because this candy cools quickly!
Place the mixture in the fridge to cool and set for 30 minutes. Break into pieces and enjoy!
