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.
