Peanut Brittle

You make this candy in the Microwave! I know that we cooks shouldn't brag about our own cooking........this is the best peanut brittle I have ever tasted. Dad always looks for this in his Christmas Basket. And, it's so easy to make.

Peanut Brittle

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup salted peanuts
1 teaspoon margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda

In 2-quart glass measure combine sugar and corn syrup, stir, cook at HIGH 4 minutes. Add peanuts; stir well. Cook at HIGH for an additional 3 1/2 minutes; add butter and vanilla, stirring well. Cook at HIGH 1 1/2 minutes. Add baking soda; stir gently until light and foamy. Immediately pour mixture onto buttered cookie sheet. Spread thinly. Cool, break into small pieces. Makes 1 1/2 pounds.
