Peanut Brittle in the Microwave

Oh man this is dangerously good and dangerously easy! It's hard not to make it all the time during the holidays!

2 cups white sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
2 cups salted peanuts
2 teaspoons butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons baking soda
1. Butter a cookie sheet. Combine sugar and corn syrup in a 2 quart glass bowl and microwave on high 4 minutes. Stir in peanuts and microwave on high 3 1/2 minutes more, then stir in butter and vanilla and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes.
2. Stir in baking soda until light and foamy. Pour onto cookie sheet and spread thin. Cool completely and break into pieces and serve.
