“I have used this for years and it is very good; much easier than the traditional method and tastes just as good.”

Ingredients

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
