One of my holiday favorites.  Bonus: it’s quick and easy too!


1 cup sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 cup raw peanuts
1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda

Combine peanuts, sugar, corn syrup and salt in a microwave-safe glass bowl.  Microwave on high for five minutes.  Stir.  Microwave three minutes more and stir in vanilla and butter.  Microwave two minutes more until peanuts are browned and syrup is very hot.
Add baking soda and stir gently until light and foamy.  Pour on a greased cookie sheet or a piece of greased waxed paper.  Cool at room temperature.  When hard, break into serving pieces and store in a sealed container.
