I made these to give to my mom for mother's day. I put in a decorative tin. I placed them in pretty muffin cups inside. She loves peanut brittle, so I thought I would kick it up a notch with this recipe. I used Dove chocolate for the milk chocolate pieces. Worked great. I used crushed cashews, pistashios, pecans and walnuts on top. Yummy!
