In the Mood for Something Sweet, but TOO Hot to Bake

All of the men in my life have a sweet tooth, and loving to bake, normally that is not a challenge. But this week it has been so warm, I am not willing to turn on the oven, only to heat up the house more. So I went researching for something sweet that did not require the oven to make. I found a yummy sounding recipe for peanut brittle.

I found this recipe on Cooks.com

2 c. sugar
1 c. white Karo syrup
1/2 c. water
2 c. raw peanuts
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. soda

Cook sugar, syrup, and water until it spins a thread. Add peanuts and cook until peanuts pop open and mixture turns a golden brown. Remove from fire, add vanilla and soda. Pour into 2 buttered pans, about 9x13 inches.

This is the final results and everyone in my house gave the recipe a thumbs up. Truth be told, there was none left the next day for my husband's lunch box treats. We will be using this recipe again.
