National Peanut Brittle Day Date in the current year: January 26, 2024

National Peanut Brittle Day You can celebrate National Peanut Brittle Day on any day of any week and month if you want to, but that's too much, isn't it? That is why there is a special day for this candy – January 26.

Brittle is a confection consisting of nuts and hard sugar candy. Although its history is not very clear, it is considered one of the first candy desserts ever made. There are different opinions on how it appeared. One of the most popular ones claims that the Irish liked eating sugarcoated nuts. Later they started adding syrup to nuts and baking the mixture, resulting in the brittle we all know and love. The dessert spread throughout Europe and was brought to the United States by immigrants, who started making it with peanuts since it was the most widely available type of nut in their new home.

Brittle is very popular in the USA, that is why National Peanut Brittle Day exists to honor this sweet treat. You can celebrate the holiday by trying to make your own peanut brittle, just keep in mind that you will need a candy thermometer to regulate the temperature of caramel. By the way, don't cook brittle on a humid day, because candy won't hold its shape. Tricky, don't you think so? If yes, then just buy peanut brittle in a nearby candy shop to celebrate the holiday.
