I made this for my husband to satisfy his peanut brittle craving and he ended up making a second batch himself.

I want to try this for Christmas but would like to know what the baking soda is for and is it necessary?

MAKE SURE YOUR PAN HAS BEEN BUTTERED BEFORE YOU POUR HOT BRITTLE MIXTURE INTO JELLYROLL PAN. [I posted this recipe.]
