In a double boiler over hot water, place peanut butter to heat while preparing syrup. In a large saucepan combine sugar, corn syrup and ¼ CUPS water. Cook over high heat to 275 deg. on candy therm. Lower heat to med, add butter, stirring until melted. Add peanuts, cook stirring for about 5 minutes until candy starts turning brown and reaches 300 deg. on therm.

Remove from heat, sitr in baking soda that has been dissolved in the 2 tsps water. Add vanilla. Working quickly, fold in warm peanut butter, stirring gently. At once, pour candy mixture onto well greased marble slab or cookie sheet. Quickly spread as thin as possible. The secret of the candy is quick cooling. When cold, break into serving size portions. Makes about 3 pounds.
