Preparation Time10-15 minutes (At most.)

ServesAbout a cookie sheet of peanut brittle. Which is, you know, quite a bit.

1 tablespoon Butter
2 cups Salted peanuts (Or other choice add-ins).
1/2 cup Light corn syrup
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract (Or other flavor of choice?) Be creative.
1 teaspoon baking soda

1. Combine sugar and corn syrup in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 2-4 minutes, depending on your microwave, as i've learned. 3 minutes usually works for me.

2. Stir in peanuts or choice add-ins and microwave for another 2-4 minutes.

3. Add vanilla/other flavoring and butter. Microwave for 1-2 minutes more.

4. Stir in baking soda until light and foamy and spread thin on a cookie sheet or pan. It takes around 10 minutes to completely harden and it's very hot, so be careful.
