Microwave Peanut Brittle
- 1 1/2 cups raw shelled peanuts, skins on
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 tsp butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking soda
- Combine peanuts, sugar, syrup and salt in a 1 1/2 quart microwave-safe bowl. Cook 8 minutes on high, stirring well after 4 minutes (cooking time may vary by oven). Stir in butter and vanilla.
- Microwave 2 minutes longer on high. Add baking soda and quickly stir until light and foamy. Immediately pour onto lightly greased baking sheet.
- Do not spread with a spoon to maintain the light, airy texture. Cool completely and break into pieces. Store in airtight container.
