Vegan Peanut Brittle

Vegan Peanut Brittle Recipe

By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 30 minutes


1 cup White Granulated Sugar (200g)

1/2 cup Golden Syrup (120ml) or Corn Syrup

1/4 tsp Salt

1/4 cup Water (60ml)

1 cup Salted Peanuts (150g)

2 Tbsp Vegan Butter (30g)

1 tsp Baking Soda


1Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray and set aside.

2Measure out the peanuts, vegan butter and baking soda and set aside for easy access later.

3Place the sugar, syrup, salt and water into a heavy bottomed pot. Turn the heat to medium high (about 1 less than maximum, so if it goes to 6, turn it up to 5) and heat, stirring all the while, until the sugar is completely dissolved and and beginning to boil.

4Set up your sugar thermometer and add the peanuts. Stir vigorously until the mixture reaches 300°F, the hard crack stage. Immediately remove from the heat and stir in the vegan butter and baking soda. Work quickly here as the mixture will want to start setting, so speed is important. When you add the baking soda the mix will bubble up, so be very careful.

5Immediately transfer the mixture to the baking sheet. Use a spatula or two forks pulling from opposite ends to try and spread the mixture out as far as possible so you get a nice thin candy.

6Place into the fridge to cool and when cold, place the bottom of a knife onto the candy and lightly tap the knife with a hammer, cracking the candy gently into pieces.
