    Old Fashioned Peanut Brittle

    1 c. white sugar
    1/2 c. white corn syrup
    1 c. salted peanuts (without skins)
    1 tsp. butter
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1 tsp. baking soda

    Stir together white sugar and corn syrup in 2-quart bowl, microwave on High for 4 minutes. Add 1 cup salted peanuts (without skins) unsalted is also fine. Stir well, microwave on High for 4 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Stir well. Microwave on High for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon baking soda. Stir gently until light and foamy. Pour mixture at once onto buttered cookie sheet, cool 1/2 to 1 hour.

    HINTS: A 2-quart pitcher is very easy to handle for the peanut brittle, as you do not have to tough the bowl at all with a handle. A bowl will become very hot.

    If you use a wooden spoon you may leave it in the bowl or pitcher while cooking for easier stirring. I use a Pyrex two-quart pitcher for both of this recipe.

    Cracker Candy

    Lay 40 saltine crackers in foil lined pan.
    1 c. brown sugar
    2 sticks (1/2 lb.) butter (Do not substitute oleo.)

    Boil 3 minutes. Pour over saltine crackers and bake 5 minutes at 400 degrees. Remove and cover with large package of milk chocolate bits. Spread MILK chocolate bits over top and let cool. Break into pieces.

    This was a hit last Christmas, it couldn't be easier either. This year I'll make a few batches and in some I'll use different flavored baking chips. :yummy:

    1/2 c. water
    1/2 c. white corn syrup
    2 c. sugar
    2 egg whites, beaten
    1/2 c. powdered sugar
    Peanut butter, at least
    1/2 c.

    Cook first 3 ingredients to 280 degrees over medium heat. In a separate bowl, have ready the 2 egg whites. Pour hot syrup into egg whites very slowly, beating constantly.

Pour mixture onto paper. Roll out with rolling pin until flat. Spread with as much peanut butter as desired. Cover completely. Roll up into 2 or 3 separate rolls.
