Directions:
1. Combine peanuts, sugar, salt and karo syrup in
microwave safe bowl and mix well with wooden
spoon. Cook on high in Microwave 4 min then mix
again and cook for another 4 min,
2. Add butter and vanilla, mix well and cook 2 min.

3. Add baking soda and mix well. Mixture will become
lighter and foamy. Pour on to buttered cookie
sheet, spread into 9-10 inch circle and cool until
hard. Break into smaller pieces and store in air
tight container.



**** Be very careful mixture becomes very hot. I used a 1 to 1 quart bowl.

You do not have to clean the bowl or spoon between batches or remove spoon while in microwave.

I have done as many as 8 batches in a row without any problems./

Be very careful mixture becomes very hot. I used a
1 to 1 quart bowl. You do not have to clean the bowl or spoon between batches or remove spoon while in microwave. Just add another batch of ingredients and cook as directed. I usually do 4-6 batches at a time.
