What will you be doing with your class the last periods before the Christmas break? If you have a strong digestive system, try this production of foamy peanut brittle. It was first suggested in the Journal of Chemical Education, August 1972, by Richard C. Adams of Pleasant Hill High School, Pleasant Hill, Oregon 97401. However, the outline given was for a 90-minute lab, and I have modified it for a 40-minute lab. I have found that with my modifications, all of my students - good or poor - can do this lab.
