    1/2 cup white syrup
    dash salt
    Stir with table knife.
    Cook on high for 4 minutes in microwave.
    Stir with a kinfe and add: 1 TBsp margarine and
    one tsp. vanilla.
    Cook on high another 4 minutes. Again, stir with knife.
    Cook another 2 minutes. and stir with knife.
    Add 1 tsp. baking soda ..quickly stir and pour immediately
    onto a greased cookie sheet and let cool.
    After mixture has cooled completely and is hard, break
    into pieces.
    Store in airtight container. Makes about one pound.

    You must pour very quickly as it will start hardening in
    the pan in a matter of a few seconds. I have never had it
    fail. Make sure your peanuts are raw..Here, I can only find
    them in the produce department of the grocery store, and only during the holidays. It is so quick and easy to make.
    The knife is a table knife. Everybody we know loves it!
    What is "white syrup" and where does one get "raw peanuts"?
