Peanut Brittle

Sierra really wanted to make peanut brittle for the Christmas season so I asked my mom for her recipe.  I don't ever remember being the one to actually help my mom makes this holiday classic so there were times that we had to FaceTime her or call in Dave (yup, he made peanut brittle growing up but he used the microwave) to come check out what we were doing to see if we were doing it right.  It turned out delicious!

Peanut Brittle

1 cup karo syrup
1/2 c water
2 c sugar
2 c raw peanuts
1/2 TBL butter
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp baking soda

Cook syrup, water and sugar to soft ball stage. Add peanuts and continue cooking, stirring constantly until syrup turns a light color and the mixture begins to thicken. Turn off heat, add butter, salt vanilla, and baking soda. Pour out onto a greased (oil)  cookie sheet. Let cool and then break apart.

This just made me want to make more holiday goodies!!
