Microwave Peanut Brittle Recipe
- 1 C sugar
- 1 C salted peanuts
- ½ C light karo syrup
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
Put sugar & syrup in a 2 qt glass microwaveable bowl, stir. Microwave on high 5 minutes.
Remove & stir in peanuts. Microwave on high for 1½ minutes, remove & stir.
Microwave for another 1½ minutes. Remove & add butter, vanilla & baking soda, stir
until foamy. Pure onto buttered cookie sheet and spread out the best you can. After
cooled, break into pieces, store in air tight container.
I use glass jars to put the brittle in, trim the top with fabric and secure a ribbon around the jar top.
