1/2cuplight corn syrup
1 1/2cupsunsalted roasted peanuts
Line a 10x15 inch baking pan (or larger) with parchment paper and set aside.
Place sugar, syrup, and water in a 2 quart with candy thermometer attached and bring to a boil over medium heat. Slowly stir in the butter a little at a time. Let the mixture boil, stirring occasionally.
When mixture reaches 250 degrees* (when you drop a little of it into cold water it forms pliable strands), add the peanuts. Stir constantly for 5-7 more minutes until mixture reaches 300 degrees*. Remove from heat.
Add the vanilla and baking soda and stir until evenly combined. Pour onto parchment lined baking sheet and quickly spread evenly.
Let cool and set.
Hold the brittle up at and angle and then give it a good wack with a mallet or back of a spoon. Break it up into various size pieces.
Store in an airtight container for up to a month.
*For every 1,000 feet above sea level, subtract two degrees Fahrenheit.
