Low-Fat Peanut Brittle (Kopie)

Made easily in the microwave, this sweet, low-fat candy is quick to make, and gets eaten even faster!

•1 cup white sugar
•½ cup light or dark corn syrup
•2 cups unsalted, dry-roasted peanuts
•1 tsp unsalted butter
•1 tsp vanilla extract
•1 tsp baking soda

Spray baking sheet pan liberally with non-stick zero-calorie cooking spray. Combine sugar and corn syrup in a microwave-safe bowl or large measuring cup and heat on high for 4 minutes. With a wooden spoon, stir in peanuts and microwave on high an additional 3 minutes. Stir in butter and vanilla and microwave in 45-second intervals until candy thermometer reads 300 degrees Fahrenheit, or until a small amount of mixture, when dropped into cold water, separates into brittle threads. Stir in baking soda and mix until light and foamy. Pour onto baking sheet, spreading outwards with the back of the wooden spoon. As brittle cools, use palms of hands to stretch out into thin sheets. Let cool completely before breaking into pieces and storing.
