1 cup granulated sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda

Generously butter a cookie sheet.or use silicone mat.
In a 2-quart (8 cup) glass mixing bowl, using a spoon, stir together granulated sugar and corn syrup. Microwave mixture on HIGH power 4 minutes.
Stir in peanuts and salt, microwave on HIGH power 3 minutes.
Mix in butter and vanilla, stirring until butter is melted.
Microwave on HIGH power 1 minute.
Stir in baking soda (mixture will become fluffy and foamy).

Pour and and lightly spread out onto prepared baking sheet (note that the less you spread the lighter the brittle will be, or more air bubbles it will have, so if you prefer it like so then do as little spreading as possible. If you prefer it flatter then spread it out thin).

Allow to cool at room temperature or place in freezer, then break into pieces once set.
