Peanut Butter
Peanut Brittle

A softer variation of a traditional Christmas Classic

2 cups sugar
1/4 cup water
1-1/2 cups light corn syrup
2 cups salted peanuts
2 to 2-1/2 cups peanut butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1-1/2 tsp. baking soda

Combine sugar and water in heavy saucepan. Bring mixture to full rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in corn syrup. Cook to hard crack stage, 300 degrees.

Meanwhile, mix peanuts, peanut butter and vanilla. Remove syrup from heat; at once add peanut butter mixture and soda; stir. Working quickly, pour onto buttered cookie sheet; spread with fork. Cool; break into pieces.

Yield: About 3 pounds of creamy peanut brittle.

And, believe it or not, this is really tasty without the nuts, or even made with crunchy peanut butter. It's certainly a lot easier to mix without the nuts.
