Homemade Peanut Brittle....in the microwave!

 
Hello!
I'm so excited to share this recipe with all of you! My mom made it tonight and it tasted so good and it was very simple! I told her she could go live with the Amish now :) That is, if Amish people used microwaves...
 
 
 
Here's what you'll need:
 
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 1/2 cups shelled peanuts
1/8 tsp salt
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1tsp vanilla
 
***Please be VERY careful while making this because the mixture gets very very very hot!!!***
 
Directions:
 
1. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
 
2. Combine sugar, corn syrup & salt in a microwave safe bowl. (do not use a plastic bowl because it will melt!)
 
3. Stir in the peanuts and microwave on high until it turns light brown. This took about 9 minutes or so. (stir twice while cooking)
 
4. Stir in the butter (or margarine), baking soda and vanilla.
 
5. Quickly spread the mixture onto your greased baking sheet.
 
6. Let cool! (We stuck ours in the fridge)
 
7. Break into pieces and enjoy! :)
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!
