Directions:
Mix sugar, karo, and salt, cook in microwave for about 4 minutes, or just until amber colored. Remove from oven (it's very hot, be very careful) and add peanuts, cook about l to 2 minutes more, remove from oven add the margarine, baking soda, and vanilla all at once, and mix thoroughly, spread on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with Pam. Spread out on cookie sheet, ( this sets up quickly). Cool, then break into pieces and put in jar, with tight fitting lid. My microwave is 1000 watts, so I really don't leave my brittle in too long.I make this all the time, it is very easy and delicious. I usually take the margarine, baking soda, and vanilla and put it together in a bowl, so I can work quickly with it. I also spray my pan in advance, so that it will be ready for me.
