This is a recipe for your microwave. It's a great one and so easy.

In 1 1/2 quart microwave safe glass dish stir together sugar and corn syrup. Microwave on high for 4 minutes.

Stir in almonds. Microwave at hight 3-5 minutes, until light brown.

Add vanilla and cocnut to syrup, blending well. Microwave at hight 1-2 minutes more. Almonds will be lightly browned and syrup very hot. It will turn a bit darker brown. That's when it will be done.

Add baking soda and gently stir until light and foamy.
