Caramel peanut brittle recipe from Werther's

Peanut brittle is a popular candy this time-both to give as a gift and to share when friends and family come to visit. This recipe from Werther’s simplifies the process and makes some of the yummiest peanut brittle you have ever tasted!


  • 1 (5.5 ounce) package Werther’s Original Hard Candies, unwrapped
  • 5 pieces Werther’s Original Baking Caramels, unwrapped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup dry roasted peanuts
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Directions Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray and set aside. In a medium size saucepan, melt both Werther’s candies over low heat until they become smooth. Be sure to stir often. Add peanuts and cook for two minutes. Stir in baking soda and vanilla then immediately spread out a thin layer on the prepared cookie sheet. Allow to cool completely before breaking into bite size pieces.
