Tasty Tuesdays Peanut Brittle

Way back in January I posted a recipe for caramel pecan cookies and in the picture next to these ever so heavenly cookies was some ever so heavenly peanut brittle. I mentioned in that post that I would give you the recipe, so 2 months later, here it is :)

Microwave Peanut Brittle
1 1/2 cups dry roasted peanuts


1 cup white sugar


1/2 cup light corn syrup


1 pinch salt (optional)


1 tablespoon butter


1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1 teaspoon 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.
