A candy thermometer will be very helpful here. Bring to a boil a half cup water, then add 2 cups sugar and 1 cup white Karo syrup and bring to a boil stirring well, cooking to thread stage, about 230 degrees F. Add 8 oz package of raw peanuts. Cook until a golden brown, about 300 degrees F.

Remove from heat and add 2 tablespoons of butter and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Mix well and then stir in 3 3.5 teaspoons baking soda rapidly. Immediately pour onto well buttered cookie sheets. For a thicker foamy brittle, do not disturb after pouring. Spreading will cause brittle to collapse and be thin. Whichever you prefer, will taste the same but is much easier to chew if left foamy. Let cool then break into pieces, enjoy.
