1 cup Karo (light) (Corn Syrup)
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
2 cups butter (not margarine)
2 cups peanuts (salted or unsalted), more if desired
1 teaspoon baking soda

directions

Butter (really well) 2 pans approx 7" X 11" (or one large pan if you want thinner brittle) Stir together the KARO, Sugar and water then bring to a boil stirring constantly, Add Butter continue boiling and stirring to 280 degrees (F) on a candy thermometer, then add peanuts (mixture should be a creamy tan color) STIR until 305 degrees F, (take off the heat if it starts to brown) Remove from heat and stir in soda and pour into pans. use a fork to pull away from the sides and when cool enough to touch turn the slab over when completely cooled break into pieces I've also used mixed nuts and made it a little thinner or for a real change add cinnamon or nutmeg.

REVIEW: recipe rating
Whats the matter with you people, its the butter that seperates this receipe from the others. i have tried the rest and this one makes the others justm plain ordinary. BUTTER

COMMENT:
I make this recipes all the time and it is only 1 cup of margarine or butter. I usually just use margarine. It's just as good as butter.
