This is absolutely the best brittle recipe I have ever used--I did stuff a bit different as I was doubling and needed a bit without nuts for someone so I put my mixture of peanuts and toasted almonds on pan and poured brittle mixture over them- WOW--this brittle was so nice!! It will be hard to stay away from it so I have enough for my Christmas food gift boxes!!Thanks very much!!
This recipe was great. I saw it and took it to work for a food day, everyone loved it. I also saved some at home all of my daughters friends loved it. THANKS A BUNCH!!
Absolutely deliscious. I had to stirred in a little butter and it tasted exactly like the expensive stuff you can order. Unfortunatly I can't stop eating it.
