    Miss Annie's Note:

    This is a must at Christmas. I like it because it is crunchy and not sticky.

      I followed the directions pretty closely...I added the peanuts at about 225* and cooked it until the hard crack stage (300*F) took about 20 minutes. Also, I prewarmed the cookie sheet to make it easier to spread (put it in the oven at 170* for about 5-10 minutes). It came out perfect! Nice and crunchy! I will definately keep this recipe for years to come!

      This is the best brittle ever. I use all kinds of nuts in the recipe, not just peanuts. Pecans seem to be the biggest hit.
