Last night I decided to make peanut brittle. This was my first time trying to make candy. I had my handy-dandy candy thermometer and a simple recipe from the Joy of Cooking. Something went very wrong. I've posted a photo. The brittle tastes like a toasted marshmallow, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but definitely isn't what I was hoping for. I followed the directions exactly and monitored the temperature carefully. Any ideas on how my brittle got so toasty? I'd like to try again, but don't want to waste any more peanuts.
