Directions

This is a fast moving recipe. Read the recipe at least twice, in entirety, before beginning. Have everything ready and in place before beginning. Use caution at all stages of recipe, including using a truly microwave-safe microwave-bowl and a trustworthy hot mitt. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. To a large microwave-safe bowl, at least 2 quarts because mixture bubbles up considerably, add the sugar and corn syrup. Cook on high power for 4 minutes. Remove bowl from microwave and stir the mixture. Stir in the peanuts. Return bowl to microwave and cook on high power for 3 1/2 minutes. Remove bowl from microwave and stir in the butter. Stir in the vanilla. Use caution; this will cause the mixture to bubble up. Return bowl to microwave and cook on high power for 1 1/2 minutes. Remove bowl from microwave and stir in the baking soda until evenly distributed and mixture is light in color. Use caution; this will cause the mixture to bubble up and foam. Turn mixture out onto parchment, spreading in a thin layer about 1/2-inch thick, or to desired thickness. Wait about 1 minute, just so it's very slightly stiff, and evenly sprinkle the chocolate chips over the brittle. Wait 1 to 2 minutes, or until chips have softened and melted, and with a spatula or knife, smooth out the chocolate. Allow brittle and chocolate to set up at room temperature for at least 2 hours before breaking or cutting into pieces.
