What You Will Need

Tips For Success:

  • Know your microwave wattage,  this recipe is calibrated for a 1000 watt microwave.
  • Have EVERYTHING ready BEFORE you begin.
  • Pay attention to the type of nuts you buy.  Raw peanuts can go in at the beginning of cooking, but roasted peanuts go in later to avoid burning.  If using unsalted peanuts, add salt to the candy mixture, but if your nuts are already salted, you won’t need to add any.
  • A silicone spatula or ‘spoonula’ works best for stirring without sticking.
  • Make the candy on a dry day…too much humidity in the air can cause sticky candy.
  • Don’t double the recipe, make another batch if you want more.  If you try to work with too much candy at once, you won’t be able to spread it out before it cools.
  • Yes this is easy, but the candy mixture will be HOT.  Take care when stirring and pouring, and this is not a project for young children.
