Homemade Pecan Brittle in the microwave…so easy.
I am posting the recipe for you. Keep in mind you really must adjust to your microwave, as some microwaves cook faster than others. Mine tended to cook a little faster as I have my setting at 100%.
This is my copy of the recipe…
If you find that copy hard to read, I added it below! Try this recipe! It really is easy once you know your microwave temps. I adjusted mine a bit over the years. I usually make 2 batches as the first one comes out a little dark.
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup of lite Karo syrup
1 cup pecan pieces or halves
1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
Microwave the 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup of Karo on high for 4 minutes using a clear medium glass bowl (I did it for 3 in my microwave)
Take out then stir in pecans. Put back in microwave for 5-7 minutes or until lightly brown. My microwave took about 4 minutes to get light brown.
Remove and stir in butter, vanilla and microwave for 1 more minute.
Remove and add in the baking soda. Stir together then quickly put on baking sheet. I let the brittle slide from side to side until it evens out. In a few minutes you will have pecan brittle that is easy to break and serve to your friends!

Travel adventures so far are still in Texas, but at least we get to catch a game!
I grew up in Arlington…and on baseball. We do try to catch a game each year as a family and maybe squeeze in a couple more throughout the season with friends.
We hope someday to catch a Range game at Fenway Park in Boston and Wrigley Field in Chicago…maybe next year! At least our travels will extend beyond the great state of Texas!!
ZUCCHINI CRUSTED PIZZA
My daughter LOVES Pizza…so she is always sending me links to low calorie Pizza. She found this recipe for Zucchini Crusted Pizza and wanted to give it a try. I was a little skeptical but we ended up really liking the flavor and texture. In fact, my whole family enjoyed! Great idea Claire!
You can make this a little more low calorie by reducing the cheese and the marinara sauce. It will still be very tasty, satisfying and good for your waist line!!
