Peanut Brittle

Ingredients:

• 1 cup white sugar

• 1/2 cup light corn syrup

• 1/4 teaspoon salt

• 1/4 cup water

• 1 cup peanuts

• 2 tablespoons butter, softened

• 1 teaspoon baking soda

Directions:

1. Grease a large cookie sheet. Set aside.

2. In a heavy 2 quart saucepan, over medium heat, bring to a boil sugar, corn syrup, salt, and water. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Stir in peanuts. Set candy thermometer in place, and continue cooking. Stir frequently until temperature reaches 300 degrees F (150 degrees C), or until a small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water separates into hard and brittle threads. Watch your mixture closely as this can happen very quickly.
