No Sugar Peanut Brittle

Recipe by The Real Cake Baker

This brittle is fantastic. You can't tell it's not made with sugar. I substitute nuts, cashews, pecans and peanuts. Very simple to make best with a candy thermo.

This recipe is a disaster! Though taste is fine, it calls for way too much butter. Grease pooled on top of the candy, and I had to use a paper towel to soak up and absorb all the excess grease. If I decide to use this recipe again, I will cut the amount of butter in half. A very similar online recipe calls for 1 cup powdered Maltitol, no corn syrup and only 1/2 cup butter.
