This is a tried and true personal favorite of mine. My dad loved it, and I think of him each time I make it!



Ingredients

1.5 cups sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt (use up to 1/2 teaspoon if you like it saltier, but I normally use salted nuts and skip the salt)
2 tablespoons butter
1.5 cups lightly salted peanuts (you can really use any nut)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon baking soda

You will also need a flat surface to place the peanut brittle (like a cookie sheet). I normally cover my surface with parchment paper. Have handy 2 forks, too.



Instructions:

In a 2 quart glass measuring cup (I use the Pampered Chef batter bowl) combine sugar, corn syrup and salt.
Stir until sugar is moistened.
Microwave on high for 4 minutes.
Stir in butter and nuts, and return to microwave for 4 1/2 minutes.
The mixture should be thick, bubbly and pale brown. It will be HOT, so use the handle of the bowl and/or an oven mitt hot hot hot!!
Stir in vanilla and baking soda (it will make a fizzing sound and cause the mixture to lose a little air).
Pour onto your prepared flat surface immediately, and spread it as flat and even as possible using the two forks (pulling at it to increase the surface area it covers).
Let stand for about 20 minutes (sometimes I put it into the fridge), and when it is cool break it into bite sized pieces yum!
Store in an airtight container.
