Peanut Brittle

• 1 Cup Peanuts
• 1 Cup Sugar
• 1/2 Cup Corn Syrup
• 1 tsp. Butter
• 1 tsp. vanilla
• 1 tsp. baking soda
• Cooking Spray (Pam)

Spray a 9X13 cookie sheet with cooking spray and set aside.

This recipe is done completely in the microwave on High power. Stir sugar and corn syrup in a large microwave save bowl. Cook on High for 4 minutes. Stir in peanuts. Cook on High for 3-5 minutes. Add the butter and vanilla and blend well. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Add the baking soda and stir until foamy. Spread the mixture on cookie sheet and let cool for 1/2 hour (be careful…mixture is hot!). Break up with a butter knife or fork and serve.

**I plan to get a little adventurous this year and make cashew brittle. I bought some not too long ago and I really liked it. I guess you could pretty much use any nut you desire!
