    Ingredients:

    1 cup raw peanuts
    1 cup sugar
    1/2 cup white corn syrup
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1 teaspoon butter


    In a microwave safe bowl ( 1 1/2 quart ) mix in the peanuts, sugar, syrup and salt.

    Cook on high for 4 minutes, stir well, then cook another 4 minutes.

    Stir in the Butter and vanilla.

    Cook for 1 minute.

    Add in the baking soda and stir qucikly. This will froth up the mixture. Immediately pour onto a lightly buttered of stick-free baking pan.

    If you don't spread the mixture, the peanut butter will have a lot different texture than the old fashioned stuff. Not as brittle, and definitely easeier on the teeth.

    Please note: These time work well for my microwave. As always, you may have to experiment with times.

    Sounds fun and cool, but I don't see why you would use raw peanuts...
    They can be a lil' chewy sometimes...

    Roasted or honey roasted are the most flavorful and crunchy...

    You use raw because they cook during the process...
