      Yummy! It made a beautiful shiny finish for the candy. I cooled the brittle in a non-stick pan and needed no foil or oil or anything to release the candy after it cooled. I toasted the pecans before adding to the mix. I like this version of brittle better than the recipes that call for water. Those seem to help you avoid burning the sugar better, but this pure sugar mix is faster and tastier. I would use this recipe again.
