Gail Atkins 10 Minute Microwave Peanut Brittle
    1. In a medium sized microwave-safe bowl, combine the syrup and sugar, stirring well until blended. Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Add the peanuts and microwave on high for another 3 minutes. Stir in the butter and vanilla, blending well. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Add the baking soda and stir until foamy. Pour onto a greased cookie sheet. Do not spread with a spatula! The brittle will not cover the entire sheet. Cool, and break it into pieces. Peanut brittle can be put in a plastic container or frozen.
    Recipe Notes

    Microwave must be at least 1,200 watts. Check inside your microwave for information.

    Use a fork or spatula that can withstand high heat. Have all ingredients on hand and measured out. When pouring the brittle onto the cookie sheet, work fast, as the brittle sets up quickly. Again, do not spread the peanut brittle with a spatula! Just let it pour out, that’s what makes it light and airy! Immediately wash the bowl and spatula in hot, soapy water.
