Microwave Peanut Brittle
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup (Karo)
- 1 Tbsp butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup peanuts (I use lightly salted cocktail peanuts)
- 1 tsp baking soda
Combine sugar and syrup in a microwave safe bowl (I use a glass bowl), stir. Microwave on high for 5 minutes. Add butter, vanilla and peanuts; stir. Microwave on high for 1 minute 30 seconds. Remove bowl from microwave and quickly stir in baking soda. Immediately pour mixture onto parchment paper, aluminum foil or a Silpat. Spread into a rectangle and let cool for 1 hour. Break into pieces and enjoy!
