You can google a lot of recipes, or Joy of Cooking cookbook is always good. It's very easy, it's just cooking sugar till it carmelizes. You have to be very careful, sugar burns VERY easily and is a smelly, awful mess if it does. Best done with a double boiler.

Peanut brittle is a candy made by boiling sugar, water, corn syrup, and raw peanuts until it reaches around 300F. Be sure to find a good recipe and be patient.
