This was my first time making peanut brittle and I followed the advice of other readers and added 1 cup of peanuts, used a candy therm. and cooked it to 300 degrees. Well, this batch I had to throw away! It started burning before it ever got to 300 and there were far to many peanuts...So I adjusted the temp. and added the butter and 3/4 cup of peanuts to the sugar at 250 degrees. I pulled it from the heat at 275 degrees and added the baking soda/salt/vanilla and water, stirred quickly and poured it out on the buttered pan. The peanut brittle is perfect, but I can only give this recipe 4 stars because the lack of details such as what to set the heat at to cook the sugars ( I chose medium/high).
