Peanut Brittle Recipe

My husband loves peanut brittle… it’s his favorite kind of candy. I don’t make it very often, but since we’re getting into the Holiday spirit, I thought why not whip up a batch. It’s easy to make, and tastes so much better homemade. Give it a try and let me know how you like it.

This would also make a cute gift. Make up a couple of batches and put the broken off pieces of brittle into small Christmas Tins. Perfect gift for neighbors, teachers and the likes.
