Ingredients

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup roasted salted peanuts
1 teaspoon butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 teaspoon baking soda

Lightly butter 15x10-inch baking sheet with sides and set aside. In a one-quart microwaveable bowl combine sugar and syrup and cook on high six to eight minutes, or syrup turns lite brown. Remove bowl from microwave oven and set onto a hot pad. Stir in peanuts, butter or margarine and vanilla, then cook one minute more. Gently stir in the 3/4 teaspoon baking soda until mixture is light and foamy. Pour evenly onto baking sheet. Cool 60 minutes. Break into small pieces and store in a tight fitting conatiner. Makes 1 pound.
