    Here's a quick, easy way to make some pretty decent peanut brittle in a short amount of time.

    Ingredients:

    1 cup sugar
    1/2 cup white corn syrup
    1 cup uncooked spanish peanuts
    dash of salt
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1 teaspoon butter
    1 teaspoon baking soda

    Mix the salt, sugar, peanuts and corn syrup in a microwave-safe bowl. I use a glass one, works great.

    Microwave on high for 4 minutes
    Stir with a wooden spoon
    Microwave on high for 4 more minutes
    Stir in vanilla and butter
    Microwave on high for one minute
    Quickly stir in the baking soda. This makes it really foamy.
    Pour over a baking sheet. A teflon one works really well.

    If you don't mess with the mixture, it will spread out some, and leave the final brittle with a lot of "honeycomb" in it. Wait for it to cool, break it up, and enjoy.

    Great taste, and it won't break a tooth out. I end up making a number of batches every year.
