Micro Peanut Brittle

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1-1/2 cups raw spanish peanuts, skins and all (1/2 pound)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup white Karo syrup (at room temperature)
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda

Instructions

Mix nuts, sugar, Karo and salt. Cook on high for 6-9 minutes. Mixture should be bubbling and peanuts browned. Quickly stir in butter and vanilla. Cook 2-1/2 to 3 minutes longer. Add soda and stir quickly - just until foamy. Pour immediately onto buttered foil. Spread out as thin as possible. Cool 15 minutes. Store in airtight container. Ovens vary - you may ruin a batch or two by "under" or "over" cooking.
