that you are still here with your family and friends.
Just enjoy the days, months and years.
I would like to wish everyone in this world, A Happy New Year 2013.

This recipe adapted from Martha Stewart.

180g Salted Peanuts / 420g Caster Sugar
Little bit of Cooking Oil / Little bit of Butter / 1/2 cup Water

With the melted butter and brush the lined baking paper.

Note : Next try, I will omit the baking paper because it still stick to the 
baking paper eventhough I have brushed with melted butter.

With a heavy base saucepan, pour in the caster sugar and water.
Boil over high fire without stirring.

Look like this after 1 minute. (Do not stir)

Look like this after 3 minutes. (Do not stir)

Once you noticed it is beginning to brown, then you start to keep
on stirring until it is golden (about 3 more minutes).

Once it is golden amber in colour, turn off the fire. 

Pour in the salted peanuts and stir until well coated.

Pour the mixture into the buttered baking paper.  
Quickly spread with an oil spatula.
Let it cool and then break the brittle into pieces.

While breaking the brittle, myself already starting to eat.
My husband is the peanut lover also can't stop himself from taking.
