Teddie Peanut Butter Brittle

1 cups of sugar
½ cup of light corn syrup
¼ cup of water
½ cup of butter, cut into chunks
1 cup of Teddie Extra Large Peanuts
½ teaspoon of baking soda

Butter one baking sheet; set aside.
Combine sugar, corn syrup, and water in a heavy saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat for 8-12 minutes, or until sugar is dissolved and the mixture comes to a boil. Add butter and stir until combined. Stir in peanuts.
Continue to cook, on medium-high heat, stirring constantly, for about 15-25 minutes or until when the peanuts start to turn a light brown color.
You will know when your brittle has reached this stage when a small amount of mixture is dropped into ice water and forms a hard but pliable strand.
Remove from heat; stir in baking soda. The mixture may pillow and bubble when the baking soda is added, continue to stir until mixed.
Pour the mixture immediately onto the prepared baking sheet; spread evenly to about 1/4-inch thickness. Cool completely (about 1 hour).
Break into pieces. Store in a container with a tight-fitting lid.
