Microwave Peanut Brittle
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 cup roasted peanuts
1 tsp. butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
In microwavable bowl combing corn syrup and sugar. Stir and microwave uncovered 3 minutes 50 seconds (Microwaves vary, do not let it burn). This is what works for mine.
Stir in peanuts. Microwave 3 minutes.
Add butter and vanilla. Microwave 1 minute 30 seconds.
Remove from microwave. Add baking soda.
Pour into 2 greased pie pans for 1/2 lb. peanut brittle disks. It can also be poured into cookie sheet.
Disks can be given away whole so the recipient can break their own brittle.
A family favorite.
