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!
