Microwave Peanut Brittle

I found this recipe in our newspaper and wanted to share, but I bet many of you have already had this in your collection of Christmas recipes. Merry Christmas!

Microwave Peanut Brittle

1 1/2 cups dry roasted peanuts
1 cup white sugar
1/2  cup light corn syrup
1 pinch salt (optional)
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda

Grease a baking sheet, and set aside. In a glass bowl combine peanuts, sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Cook in microwave for 6 to 7 minutes on High; mixture should be bubbly and peanuts browned. Stir in butter and vanilla; cook 2 to 3 minutes longer.
