I made this just the other day and was surpised out of well it went over with my co-workers! This recipe is not for you if you like the hard peanut brittle. This has a soft texture and does not "break your teeth" like the rest. My kids even loved it. Thank You so much for posting it grandma2969....your grandkids are really lucky!!
