3. Microwave & Mix

Place the bowl in the microwave then heat the mixture on high for four minutes. Next, carefully remove the bowl from the microwave, add peanuts to the peanut brittle mixture and fold with a spoon or spatula until the peanuts are covered.

Return the bowl to the microwave then microwave on high for two minutes. Once again, carefully remove the bowl from the microwave and stir the mixture well. Then return the bowl to the microwave for a third time and heat this easy peanut brittle for one minute.

Next stir the mixture then heat in the microwave on high for a final 30 seconds. (Consequently the microwave times are as follows: 4 minutes, 2 minutes, 1 minute then 30 seconds.)

4. Final Ingredients

Finally, add butter, vanilla and baking soda to the peanut mixture then stir the peanut brittle mixture until it has a foam like consistency. Then spread mixture onto the buttered baking sheet.
