My favorite roomie ever who shares my love of baking brought this easy peanut brittle recipe. Quick and sugary- Just what I like!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup peanuts

1 tablespoon corn syrup

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter

Procedure:

Cut the butter into chunks so it melts evenly. Combine sugar, corn syrup, and butter in a large saucepan (larger than you think is necessary- it bubbles up.)

Heat over high heat, stirring constantly. It will bubble a lot and stuff, Keeeeeep stirring!

Add the peanuts when it gets to be a light brown color. Eventually it will turn the color of coffee with 2 creams. Not one cream, not 3 creams, 2 creams. Exactly. You have to be quick about it, and this apparently takes practice which I will experiment with eventually.

Then pour into a pan lined with parchment paper. Let cool and break into pieces! Yum!
