Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 Tsp. Baking Soda
1 Tsp. Water
1 Tsp. Vanilla
1 1/2 C Sugar
1 C Water
1 C Light corn syrup
3 Tbsp Butter or margarine
1 Lb. Peanuts, shelled & unroasted


Butter two cookie sheets (15 1/2" x 12") and keep warm.

Mix baking soda with the 1 teaspoon of water and vanilla - set aside.

Mix sugar, 1 cup water and the corn syrup in a 3 quart saucepan.

Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally to 240 degrees on a candy thermometer.

Stir in butter and peanuts.

Cook, stirring constantly to 300 degrees on the candy thermometer (watch closely so mixture doesn't burn).

Immediately remove from heat; stir in baking soda mixture.

Pour half of the candy mixture onto each cookie sheet and spread about 1/4" thick.

Cool and break into pieces.
