Vegan Microwave Peanut Brittle

Vegan Microwave Peanut Brittle

When you think of comfort food, most have a family connection. This recipe is no different, it is my mothers peanut brittle recipe that she has been making for as long as I can remember. What's different then most recipes, is it actually contains peanuts. Most brittles are skimpy on the nuts but this one delivers. This brittle goes on every cookie tray she ever makes and iit s a hit with everyone who tastes it...she has made it a comfort food for not only our family but many other families as well. I have taken her recipe and turned it vegan and am sharing it with all of you (with her permission of course!)...I hope your Family & Friends enjoy it just as much as ours do.

Ingredients

-1 cup sugar

-1 teaspoon real vanilla extract
-1 teaspoon baking soda

-Enough butter to coat a cookie sheet

Directions

Once the minutes are up remove from microwave and Stir and incorporate the baking soda until light and foamy. Pour onto buttered cookie sheet and spread to desired thickens. Cool completely and break into pieces and serve. Enjoy!
