Butter 2 cookie sheets 12x15-inch; keep warm (in oven). Mix baking soda, 1 tsp. water and the vanilla reserve. Mix sugar, 1 c. water and corn syrup in 3 qt. saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, to 240 on candy thermometer or until small amount of syrup dropped into ice water forms soft ball that flattens when removed from water. Stir in margarine and peanuts. Cook, stirring constantly, to 300 or until small amount in cold water separates into hard and brittle threads (watch mixture carefully so it doesn't burn). Immediately remove from heat; stir in baking soda mixture. Pour half of the candy mixture onto each cookie sheet and quickly spread about 1/4-inch thick. Cool and break into pieces.
