A little bit sweet, a little bit salty, this Old Fashioned Peanut Brittle is a delicious (and rather addicting) treat! It's also surprisingly easy to make!

4Tbspbuttercut into small cubes
Spray a large rimmed cookie sheet with nonstick baking spray; set pan aside.
Using a large saucepan, add sugar, corn syrup, salt and water; stir until well combined. Set pan over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until sugar has completely dissolved. (Note: Use a larger saucepan than you might think as the mixture expands when heated.)
Once temperature reaches 280°F, add peanuts and butter.
Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until temperature reaches 300°F.
Remove from heat. Immediately stir in vanilla extract and baking soda. (Note: Use caution as baking soda will make mixture bubble up.)
Immediately pour mixture onto prepared cookie sheet. Using a rubber spatula, spread mixture evenly across cookie sheet.
