  • 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.
