In a medium-sized heavy pot, stir together 1 cup sugar, ½ cup light corn syrup, and a pinch of salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil. Boil, without stirring, 5 minutes (310 degrees on a candy thermometer). Add 1 cup dry-roasted peanuts. Stir. Cook 2 or 3 more minutes (280 degrees on a candy thermometer). Mixture will be golden brown. Remove from heat and stir in 2 tablespoons butter, 1 teaspoon baking soda, and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract. Immediately, pour mixture into a 15-inch by 10-inch jellyroll pan that has been sprayed with cooking oil spray. Spread mixture with the back of a wooden spoon until of desired thickness and even. Let cool 5 minutes or until hardened. Break into pieces, using a large spoon. Place on serving dish, or store in an airtight container. The taste of this Party Peanut Brittle is outrageously good!
