Directions:
Cook water, syrup and sugar on medium high stirring constantly. Add peanuts when mixture comes to a boil. Stir continuously. Continue cooking on medium high, while stirring, to 250 on candy thermometer. Add margarine. Stir continuously up and down until 300. Remove from heat and add vanilla, salt and soda. Stir and quickly pour on buttered surface. Let cool before breaking and bagging.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
**If using pie tins, this will fill about 6 or 7 tins. Be sure each tin is generously buttered. When you pour the mixture in the tin it helps to "spin" the tin around to spread the mixture.
**This works better as a 2 person project. The key is to continuously stir and work quickly when pouring onto surface.
