Ingredients

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup light corn syrup
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup Spanish peanuts, roasted and lightly salted
  • 1½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla


Method

  1. Set oven to its lowest setting.
  2. Line a baking sheet with a silicone liner like silpat. You can also lightly butter the pan, or use a layer of nonstick foil. Put the pan in the oven to warm.
  3. Put the sugar and corn syrup in a large glass bowl. Stir to combine.
  4. Microwave (on full power) for 3 minutes, then stir. Microwave for another 3 minutes.
  5. Add the butter and peanuts and stir.
  6. Put back in the microwave for 2 more minutes.
  7. Stir in the baking soda and vanilla.
  8. Quickly turn out the mixture onto the warmed baking sheet. Spread the candy out with a flat spreading knife (I buttered it lightly) as evenly and thinly as you can. Don't worry about getting it symmetrical or neat.
  9. Let the candy sit until completely cool and hard, maybe 30 minutes or so, and then remove from the pan and break into pieces.
  10. Store the candy in cellophane bags.
