this recipe makes a delicious brittle and it was fairly easy. the hardest part was stirring the corn syrup and the sugar together in the beginning :) I used my glass Pampered Chef 4-cup batter bowl and it was perfect. Here is the timing that worked in my 950watt microwave: heat just the combined corn syrup and sugar alone for 5 minutes, then add the butter, vanilla and peanuts (I used lightly salted, dry roasted) and then heat for another 3 minutes. Stir in the baking soda and immediately pour onto a warmed (I kept mine in a heated oven while I microwaved), parchment-lined (buttered foil works, too) cookie sheet. Spreading the mixture can be a little tricky, but not very much spreading should be necessary if the cooking time is right. I put the cookie sheet on a cooling rack and then transferred the parchment with the brittle on it, directly to the rack after a few minutes to cool further.
