    Leta's Note:

    A great crisp peanut brittle, it takes a little practice but is well worth the effort. From a 30 yr old cookbook, Betty Crocker I think. All the covers and title pages are long gone....

      The peanut brittle turned out perfect. Very crisp and does not stick to the teeth. Thanks for submitting this recipe. Others I have done have not turned out as yummy as this one!
