This is the BEST peanut brittle recipe I have ever found! It's so easy and fast I just loooove it. I think I got it from the Home Economics teacher Mrs. Child in highschool :) Mom and I have had to fiddle with the reciple some to get the cooking time right for our own microwaves. If the times don't work for you try again with shorter or longer time as needed.
Peanut Brittle1 cup sugar
1/2 Cup Karo
3/4 cup raw spanish peanunts
1/8 tsp salt
1 T. butter
1 tsp Vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
Grease one cookie sheet. Mix sugar, karo, nuts and salt in a MICROWAVE SAFE glass bowl. Microwave for 3.5 min. Add butter and stir. Cook for 2.5 min, stir. Cook 2 min, stir, add vanilla and baking soda, stir and quickly poor onto greased cookie sheet.
Let cook, break into pieces, stretch with forks while still warm if desired.
NOTE: If you are going to make another batch let your bowl cool completely or use a different bowl or it will burn... I have burned SO many batches of this by not paying attention to time or using a warm bowl.
