"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Boil Karo syrup, sugar and water until it spins a thread. Add butter (the size of a walnut) and raw peanuts. Let boil until it turns golden brown, then add soda. Pour into buttered pan. Be sure to pour while it is foaming from the soda. When cool, break in small pieces.

Note: Do not undercook. Make sure the spin a good thread and you can get a good crack (I assume this means if you drop the thread in cold water?). Make in single batch.
