This easy homemade Peanut Brittle is an old-fashioned sweet, hard candy made on the stovetop with six simple ingredients and roasted peanuts. It’s a family favorite during the holidays but can be enjoyed any time of year!

There’s just something special about old-fashioned recipes like peanut brittle. My other favorite old-fashioned recipes include Grandma’s Oatmeal Cake, Baked Apples and Baked Rice Pudding.

Every holiday season my grandmother used to make a few batches of peanut brittle. She always dropped a container at our house and it lasted all season. I can’t help but think of her when I think of this Peanut brittle recipe.
