    Arrow Peanut Brittle

    Yum...I have never made this before, but I think I might make some for my aunt--she loves it, and this looks like an easy recipe:

    NEAR INSTANT PEANUT BRITTLE

    This fast version of peanut brittle is yummy and kid-friendly with its measuring and mixing, but particularly good for a game of Candy Land while it's cooling. Note: the microwave makes this a simple, fast treat, but the syrup comes out very hot, and pouring it is a parent's job.
    INGREDIENTS

    1 cup sugar
    1/2 cup light corn syrup
    1 cup dry-roasted peanuts
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon butter or margarine
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 teaspoon baking soda


    HOW TO MAKE IT

    In a 1 1/2-quart microwave-safe bowl, stir together the sugar, syrup, peanuts, and salt, mixing well. Microwave on high for 6H minutes. (Times will vary depending on microwave wattage. We based these times on an 850-watt oven.) Carefully swirl the butter or margarine and vanilla extract into the mixture; don't stir. Microwave for another 30 seconds. The peanuts should be light brown, the syrup will have darkened slightly, and the mixture will be very hot (300° on a candy thermometer). Add baking soda and gently stir the mixture until it's light and foamy. Pour it onto a lightly buttered cookie sheet. (Tip: For a thinner brittle, first warm the sheet in the oven.) Let the brittle cool for 30 minutes to 1 hour, then break it into small pieces. Makes 2 pounds.
