Peanut butter brittle with spicy heat from cinnamon and cayenne pepper is a perfect holiday treat

Ingredients
  • PAM® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • 1 cup Peter Pan® 100% Natural Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon ground Vietnamese cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups dry roasted peanuts
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
 
Directions
  1. Spray 11x17-inch baking sheet with cooking spray. Stir together peanut butter, butter, cinnamon and cayenne pepper in small saucepan. Heat over very low heat until melted and combined; keep warm.
  2. Stir together sugar, corn syrup, water and salt in medium saucepan. Heat over high heat until boiling; stir in peanuts. Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook until mixture reaches hard-crack stage (about 300°F), stirring constantly. Remove pan from heat and quickly stir in peanut butter mixture and baking soda. Working quickly, pour mixture onto baking sheet and spread to 1/4-inch thickness. Allow to cool 1 to 2 hours before breaking into pieces.
Cook's Tips

Look for Vietnamese cinnamon in your favorite grocer's spice aisle. For more heat, substitute the cayenne pepper for habenero or ghost pepper powder.
