Microwave Peanut Brittle

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 to 1-1/2 cups roasted, salted peanuts (with or without skins)
1 tablespoon margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda

Combine sugar, syrup, and salt in a 2-quart mixing bowl. Microwave on high for 5 minutes. Stir in nuts and microwave for 3 to 5 more minutes. (watch so nuts don't burn) Stir in butter, vanilla, and baking soda until mixture is light and foamy. Spread on a well greased cookie sheet. Cool and slam cookie sheet on counter to break up into small pieces.
