To make peanut brittle, first grease a baking sheet or pan with cooking spray or butter and set the pan aside.
Combine sugar, light corn syrup, and salt in a medium-size heavy saucepan, and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture starts to boil. Use a brush dipped in warm water to wash down any crystals that may have formed on the sides of the pan.
Boil, without stirring, for 5 minutes or until a candy thermometer reaches 310 degrees. (Note to editors: Do not show a temperature on the thermometer.)
The mixture should be a golden color at this point. (Note to editors: do not include the part where we dip the metal spoon into the mixture.)
Add dry-roasted or shelled raw peanuts and cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring until all of the peanuts are coated. (The mixture should now be golden brown.)
Remove from the heat, and stir in softened butter, baking soda, and vanilla. Don't
over-stir this mixture. Once you stir in the baking soda, it will foam up. Immediately pour it in a thin layer onto the greased baking sheet and spreading the mixture with a spatula or wooden spoon. You need to pour and spread it while it's still foamy because that's what gives the brittle its airy texture. Try to distribute the nuts as evenly as you can. .
Let it stand about 5 minutes or until hardened.
After it's hardened and is completely cool, break the brittle into pieces.
