LINE large baking sheet or tray with wax paper; spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray.



COMBINE coffee granules, baking soda and salt in small bowl; set aside. Combine sugar, water and cream of tartar in medium, heavy-duty saucepan. Stir with wooden spoon over low heat until sugar is dissolved, occasionally brushing down sides of pan with wet pastry brush if needed.



BRING to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 6 minutes or until mixture is a light brown color. Remove from heat; add butter and coffee mixture (mixture will foam) and stir quickly to combine.



POUR mixture onto prepared baking sheet. Tilt sheet to spread mixture evenly (should spread to roughly 12 x 9-inches in diameter). Quickly sprinkle with peanuts. Cool completely (about 30 minutes). Break brittle into pieces. Store in airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.



Cook’s Tip: For Chocolate Candy Brittle, replace coffee with 2 tablespoons NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Baking Cocoa.
