    Wendelina's Note:

    This "brittle" is great because it doesn't get so hard that your teeth break trying to bite it! It's super easy to make. It's light, crunchy and sweet. You could use different nuts in it, but I like the cashews best. I triple the batch because it goes fast!

      I just made this to sell at a Certified Farmer's Market. I had to make 2 batches because I almost ate the entire first batch. I did add 1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla extract. These were so delicious. I am sure my customers will like it. I also made a batch with peanuts.

      Yeah, it's a DARNED SHAME that we can only award 5 measely stars! I handed this one off to my wife for preparation and when she discovered how EASY this is, she made 3 batches to give away as Christmas gifts to the neighbors. And, man, is this stuff ever delicious -- a nice mellow buttery flavor. Better than any peanut brittle or cashew brittle I've ever had! Thanks a million, Wendelina, for this fine recipe! pat, the old bone man
