This peanut brittle recipe is sweet and salty and hits all the right spots. Whip it up as a dessert tonight!

1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light corny syrup
1 cup peanut, dry roasted, salted
1 teaspoon unsalted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda

1. Lay a piece of parchment paper over a large cookie sheet. Set aside.
2. Combine sugar and cory syrup in a 2qt. glass bowl. Microwave (on power level 7) for 4 minutes. {I use a 1500watt microwave}
3. Remove and stir in peanuts quickly using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon. Return to microwave and heat for 3 ½ minutes (on power level 7).
4. Remove and stir in butter and vanilla extract. Return to microwave for an additional 1 ½ minutes (on power level 7).
5. Remove and stir in baking soda, mixing until light and foamy. Pour over parchment paper and spread to desired thickness, working quickly.
6. Allow peanut brittle to set and harden at room temperature (about 2 hours). Break into desired sized pieces and store in an airtight container for up to one week.
