1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 pinch salt (optional)
1 1/2 cups dry roasted peanuts
1 Tbsp. butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda

Grease a baking sheet and set aside.  In a glass bowl combine, sugar, corn syrup, and salt.  Cook in microwave for 6 to 7 minutes on High (700 W); Mixture should be bubbly.  Stir in butter, vanilla, and peanuts; cook 2 to 3 minutes longer.

Quickly stir in baking soda, just until mixture is foamy.  Pour immediately onto greased baking sheet.  Let cool 15 minutes or until set.  Break into pieces and store in airtight container.

*** Place baking sheet in 200° oven while peanut brittle is baking and remove just before pouring.  This will give you a little more work time to spread the peanut brittle to the thickness you like.
