  • 1

    cup white sugar

  • 1/2

    cup light corn syrup

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/4

    cup water

  • 1

    cup peanuts

    tablespoons butter, softened

  • 1

Directions

1. Grease a large cookie sheet. Set aside. 2. In a heavy 2 quart saucepan, over medium heat, bring to a boil sugar, corn syrup, salt, and water. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Stir in peanuts. Set candy thermometer in place, and continue cooking. Stir frequently until temperature reaches 300 degrees F (150 degrees C), or until a small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water separates into hard and brittle threads. 3. Remove from heat; immediately stir in butter and baking soda; pour at once onto cookie sheet. With 2 forks, lift and pull peanut mixture into rectangle about 14x12 inches; cool.
