1tablespoonButterplus enough to grease a baking sheet
First, prepare a baking sheet with a layer of aluminum foil followed by a layer of butter. Simply smear the butter over the foil then set the pan aside. Then spray a layer of cooking spray on the inside of a microwave safe bowl.
Next, add the sugar, syrup and salt to the prepared bowl and stir until well combined.
Place the bowl in the microwave then heat the mixture on high for four minutes. Next, 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 heat on high for two minutes. Once again, 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 simple 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.)
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 buttered baking sheet.
Allow Peanut Brittle to harden for one hour before breaking it into serving size pieces and enjoy!
