1 cup sugar
1/2 cup white corn syrup
1 cup dry roasted (salted) peanuts
1 tsp. butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda

Directions:
Directions:
Grease cookie sheet ( I spray with Pam). In a one qt. glass or ceramic bowl (I use 1 qt. Pyrex measuring cup), thoroughly combine sugar and corn syrup. Microwave on high power for 4 minutes. Remove from microwave. Using a wooden spoon, stir in peanuts until well coated with candy mixture and microwave on high for 4 minutes or until candy is light brown. Add butter and vanilla, stirring well. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Using hot pads, remove bowl from microwave. Working quickly, add baking soda. Stir well so that entire candy mixture becomes foamy. Quickly pour mixture onto greased cookie sheet, spreading by tilting cookie sheet back and forth, until the candy is fairly equally distributed in a thin layer (thick brittle is difficult to crack after it hardens). Cool 20-30 minutes in the refrigerator. When candy is hard, hold the cookie sheet sideways over a counter top. Flex the pan to loosen candy (I wipe the back of the peanut brittle with a paper towel before breaking into pieces to absorb Pam spray). Break into desired size pieces. Store in airtight container. Makes about 1 pound.
