Combine sugar, corn syrup and water in saucepan; bring to boiling point. Reduce heat; cook to hard ball stage. (Best to use candy thermometer.) Beat egg whites until fluffy. May add 3 ounces dry strawberry or lime gelatin in at this point if wanted but not necessary. Beat until stiff peaks form. Pour syrup slowly into egg whites, beating constantly until candy loses gloss and holds shape. Add nuts. Drop by spoonfuls on waxed paper.

Brittle Recipes

Microwave Peanut Brittle

1 c. sugar
1/2 c. light corn syrup
1 c. raw peanuts
1/8 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda

Combine first 4 ingredients in 2-quart microwave mixing bowl. Microwave on HIGH for 8 minutes, stirring after 4 minutes. Add butter. Microwave on HIGH 2 minutes. Brittle should not get too brown. Stir in vanilla and soda until light and foamy. Spread on buttered baking sheet as thinly as possible. Cool. Break into pieces. Soak mixing bowl in warm sudsy water immediately for easier clean-up.

Old Fashioned Peanut Brittle
1 c. white sugar
1/2 c. white corn syrup
1 c. salted peanuts (without skins)
1 tsp. butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda

Stir together white sugar and corn syrup in 2-quart bowl, microwave on High for 4 minutes. Add 1 cup salted peanuts (without skins) unsalted is also fine. Stir well, microwave on High for 4 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Stir well. Microwave on High for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon baking soda. Stir gently until light and foamy. Pour mixture at once onto buttered cookie sheet, cool 1/2 to 1 hour. HINTS: A 2-quart pitcher is very easy to handle for the peanut brittle, as you do not have to tough the bowl at all with a handle. A bowl will become very hot. If you use a wooden spoon you may leave it in the bowl or pitcher while cooking for easier stirring. I use a Pyrex two-quart pitcher for both of these recipes.
