1/4 cup water
1/2 cup light Karo syrup
1 cup granulated sugar
2 cups raw peanuts
1 tsp. baking soda
Note: Make on a cold, clear night. If there's dampness in the air, it will be sticky! Fill your sink with hot soapy water, grease large cookie sheet, and measure the baking soda out on a paper towel near the stove. This recipe moves fast, so don't wander off!
In a cast-iron skillet, boil water, syrup, and sugar.
Add nuts (you may sub peanuts for whatever nuts you prefer) and cook until 6-8 nut make a little "pop", stirring often. I use a heavy slotted spoon.
Immediately remove from heat and stir in soda. Stir mixture (now foaming) onto greased pan. Toss hot skillet into sink for easy cleanup.
Take cookie sheet outside and leave about 15 minutes before checking for brittleness.
Pieces should snap apart.
