Hello Everyone! I am new here. I found this site last night, and I LOVE the recipes you all have posted! I was looking for Peanut Brittle and Fudge recipes, and I found GREAT ones here. The Rocky Road Fudge I made today came out wonderful, but I'm having a problem with the Peanut Brittle. I followed the instructions for Microwave Brittle to a tee, and my brittle's not hard. It was hard when I had it in the freezer, but now that it's out, it's limp and chewy. I don't know what's wrong.
I changed NOTHING in the recipe. I'm sad. I wanted it to come out good.....
If anyone has any experience w/this and has any advice, input, or suggestions, I'd be SO grateful to hear from you!

Thanks SO much Shortcake! I'll go check out the tutorial now. I have The New Settlement Cookbook, and according to their directions, you only use 2 things for brittle: Sugar, and Peanuts! This book is pretty old, but I thought I might try it their way to see how it comes out. I'll read the tutorial 1st, and see what happens.

Shortcake, I just read the instructions from the link you gave me, and they seem to be identical to what I did. I can't imagine why my brittle is not as hard as it should be. I wonder if this has happened to anyone else, even when they've followed the instructions to a tee.
