Why I Love This Recipe

I have made peanut brittle for special occasions for many years, but never tried it in the microwave before, but this recipe is so simple it may become my new favorite method.

1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup peanuts or any nut you like
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 Tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon baking powder


Directions

use large glass bowl and wood or metal spoons (this gets really hot)
