Sweet and salty, crunchy peanut brittle candy – easy to make in your microwave in just a few minutes!
1 1/2 cups dry roasted peanuts
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon butter
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 power. Mixture should be bubbly and peanuts browned.
Stir in butter and vanilla then cook 2 to 3 minutes longer. ( see note)
Quickly stir in baking soda (just until mixture is foamy). Pour immediately onto greased baking sheet.
Allow cool 15 minutes or until set. Break into pieces (I just use a butter knife to crack it apart), and store in an airtight container.
