Peanutty Brittle

This is probably one of my easiest recipes. I've messed around with the ratios and have found out that you can NOT double this recipe. It won't harden if you do. So, I recommend that you just take the extra time and make it in the small batches.

1 & 1/2 c. dry roasted peanuts
1 c. white sugar
1/2 c. light corn syrup
1 pinch salt
1 tbls butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda

Grease a baking sheet, and set aside. In a glass bowl, combine peanuts, sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Cook in microwave for 6 to 7 minutes on High; mixture should be bubbly and peanuts browned. Stir in butter and vanilla; cook 2 to 3 minutes longer.

Quickly stir in baking soda, just until mixture is foamy. Pour immediately onto greased baking sheet. Let cool 15 minutes, or until set. Break into pieces, and store in an airtight container.
