Microwave Peanut Brittle
Submitted by Janet MacDonald, York
I give these Christmas candies out for gifts in pretty Christmas
tins. They are a very popular and tasty gift.
Prepare final mixture of 1 Tbsp. melted butter, 1 tsp. vanilla
and 1 tsp. baking soda and set aside. Then in large bowl, combine
and stir 1 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup yellow corn syrup. Microwave
on high for 21/2 minutes and remove from oven. Stir fast and microwave
for another 21/2 minutes. Take out, add 11/2 cups salted peanuts,
mix up fast and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Take out, stir
fast and microwave for another 2 minutes. Take out and quickly
stir in the final mixture. Pour or drop on to greased cookie
sheet. Let cool and break into pieces.
