"I made this peanut brittle recipe last night and had pretty good luck. It was the first time I have made peanut brittle but I read all the reviews before I started. I ended up following the recipe except I added unsalted dry roasted peanuts after it reached 300 degrees as suggested by "VampMorlock". I only made a single batch so I didn't have any problem spreading it out. I just used my large Pampered Chef spatula to press it out. I will definitely try this recipe again."
