Easy Peanut Brittle
Roast peanuts as for Peanut Butter without adding salt. (You can cook the whole lot at once; it takes only a little more time.)
Add hot nuts, butter and vanilla essence (if using) and stir thoroughly. Then stir in baking soda until the mixture foams and turns pale. Spread evenly into a buttered (or sprayed) sponge roll tin. To make it easier to break into pieces, mark the top into squares or bars, using a blunt knife, such as a dinner knife, when the mixture is half-set but still hot.
