Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups salted dry-roasted peanuts
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon butter (no substitutes)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

First Directions

  1. Coat a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. pan and metal spatula with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. In a bowl, toss the peanuts, hot pepper sauce and allspice until evenly coated; set aside.
  2. In a 2-qt. microwave-safe glass bowl, combine sugar and corn syrup. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 4 minutes; stir. Add peanut mixture; stir until blended.
  3. Heat on high 4-5 minutes longer or until mixture turns a light amber color (mixture will be very hot). Stir in butter. Microwave 45 seconds longer. Quickly stir in baking soda and vanilla until mixture foams and becomes light-colored.
  4. Immediately pour mixture onto prepared pan and spread as thin as possible with prepared spatula. Cool. Bread into pieces.
