Stir together peanuts, salt, sugar and corn syrup (will be thick to start). Cook in microwave oven for 8 1/2 minutes, stopping at the end of 4 minutes, turn dish & stir good. Return to microwave oven and cook 4 1/2 minutes. At the end of the 8 1/2 minutes add oleo, and vanilla and stir well. Then cook 1 1/2 minutes longer. Remove from the microwave oven and add soda, mix well. Pour onto foil, spread to cool. You do not have to butter foil, but I do. After the peanut brittle has cooled well, break into small pieces and store in an airtight container.
