Mix granulated sugar, corn syrup, and water in a big pot (use one larger than thought). Over medium-low heat, whisk occasionally, until the sugar mixture reaches 250°F (121°C).

Add peanuts and stir while heating. Keep swirling until the mixture reaches 300°F (150°C). I suggest an instant-read or candy thermometer for this stage.

2

Stop cooking and remove the pot. Put butter, baking soda, and vanilla in quickly. The mixture will steam, so whisk fast but carefully. Stir in the butter until well incorporated.
