Peanut-popcorn brittle a sweet baseball-season snack

When you’re at Minute Maid Park – or any other ballpark, for that matter – you’ll buy your favorites wrapped in foil and stuffed into cellophane bags and neatly wrapped cardboard boxes.

If you’ve ever tried to make your own caramel corn, a home cook’s version of Cracker Jack, you know it can be a sugary, sticky mess.

Whether you’re rooting for the Houston Astros or any other team, this Ballpark Brittle will make every victory taste that much sweeter – or even ease the pain of defeat.

Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract and baking soda (it will foam up).

Spanish peanuts have a distinctive flavor, in part because of their skins, that gives the brittle its Cracker Jacklike appeal.

Immediately pour the mixture onto the prepared baking sheets, dividing evenly.
