    Way to many peanuts. 1/4 to 1/2 cups is enough. I would say 1/4. Other than that, good recipe. The brittle comes out fine.

    i love this kind, it was great, but i tried it and the bowl i used MELTED in the microwave... haha i wasn't even in trouble, the part of it that wasn't covered in plastic was good and my parents probably didn't ground me just b/c it tasted so good!
