Easy treats!

It's that time. The to-do list is crazy. This is worth doing.

Peanut Brittle-

Mix 2 c. sugar and 1 c. white corn syrup in a large pan. (try to use a light colored one!) Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and cook until amber. (It will go from butter color to amber. Wait for it.)

Remove the pan from heat, and add 2 rounded t. baking soda. Stir until blended, and add 2 heaping T. margerine, 2 c. peanuts, and 1 t. vanilla. Pour into two greased cookie sheets.

Yield-about 2 lb

I tagged you for a meme because I suck and also because I really wanna know how weird you will admit to being. And I'm also pretty sure I'm a long way from West Fuckcakes Texas to be worried about any kind of significant, real time repercussions.
