MICROWAVE PEANUT BRITTLE

Ingredients

1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
Dash of salt
1 to 1 1/2 cups shelled raw peanuts
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla

Spray a baking sheet generously.  Combine sugar, corn syrup and salt in a 3 quart microwave bowl.  Stir in peanuts and microwave on high until light brown. (About 9 to 10 minutes.) Stir twice while cooking.(This gets very hot, so be careful not to get burned and I use a glass casserole dish. Don’t use tupperware. It will melt.)   Stir in remaining ingredients.  Mixture should be light and foamy.  Quickly spread as thin as possible on greased baking sheet.  Let cool and break into pieces. Makes about 1 pound of peanut brittle.  Enjoy!

1/3 cup evaporated milk or can use heavy cream
1/3 cup light corn syrup

Grease an 8 x 8 pan with butter or margarine.  Combine milk and syrup and bring to a boil.  Boil 1 minute. Turn heat to low, add chips stirring constantly until melted.  Remove from heat and add vanilla, powdered sugar and nuts. Stir with spoon till smooth.  Pour in pan, cover and refrigerate until set, one to two hours.  Makes about 30 small  pieces of fudge.  Enjoy.
