Peanut Brittle

A fast and delicious recipe from Judy.

1/2 cup corn syrup
1 cup salted peanuts or honey roasted
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda

1. In a large microwavable bowl, mix together corn syrup, peanuts, and sugar. Cook on high for 3 minutes then stir in butter and vanilla. (Do not use anything plastic to stir contents as it will melt). Cook additional 3 minutes.

2. Stir in baking soda and immediately pour onto greased or parchment paper lined baking sheet. The mixture will be very hot, so work fast, and avoid touching the mixture. The baking sheet will not be completely covered.
3. Place in fridge (carefully as pan will be hot on the bottom) until hard and set, about an hour. Break into pieces & enjoy!

For best keeping, store in an airtight container.

I made this for my Dad's birthday!
