Prep Time: 5 minutes
1 C. white sugar
1/2 C. light corn syrup
1 1/2 C. spicy peanuts, more or less (habanero, jalapenos, etc.)
1 T. butter
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla extract
What to do:
Spray a baking sheet and a wooden spoon with cooking spray. Mix sugar and corn syrup together in a microwaveable bowl safe for high temperatures.
Heat sugar mixture in microwave on high for 5 minutes.
Stir peanuts and butter into sugar mixture. Heat in microwave until mixture becomes a caramel color, 3 to 4 minutes.
Mix baking soda and vanilla extract into syrup until smooth and foam has dissipated. Spread candy onto the prepared baking sheet using the sprayed wooden spoon. Try to pull it as thinly as possible. Work quickly; candy hardens fast. Let stand until cooled. Break into pieces to serve.
