Julia's Peanut Brittle

Since I've talked about it enough in the past two posts. Here is my quick and easy recipe for peanut brittle. No candy thermometer required!

Julia’s Peanut Brittle

1 cup sugar
2 cups unsalted peanuts
½ cut corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp butter
1 tsp baking soda

Put corn syrup in 1-qt microwave safe bowl, lightly mix in sugar. Microwave for 3 minutes. Mix in peanuts using wooden spoon. Microwave for 2 minutes. Stir in vanilla and butter. Microwave for 1 minute 10 seconds. Quickly mix in baking soda and pour onto greased cookie sheet. Spread out using the back of a wooden spoon. Let cool and then break into pieces. Please note that cooking times will vary by microwave.

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clift...
