Microwave Green Chile Pistachio Brittle

This microwave version of peanut brittle is easier to prepare than most, but be sure to use a large bowl to keep the mixture from boiling over as the volume increases. The green chile heat is a nice complement to the sweet brittle.

2 cups sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Generously grease both a 2-quart microwavable bowl and a large cookie sheet.

Combine the sugar, corn syrup, salt, and pistachios in the bowl and mix well. Microwave on high for 4 minutes. Remove, stir well and again microwave on high for 4 minutes.

Add the butter and stir well to blend. Return to the microwave and cook for another 4 minutes on high.

Remove from the microwave and add the baking soda and vanilla, then quickly stir the mixture until it turns a light brown. Immediately pour the mixture onto the greased cookie sheet and let it cool completely.

When the candy is cooled, break it into pieces and enjoy immediately, or store in an airtight tin for future use.

Yield: 1 � pounds
Heat Scale: Mild
