Great recipe, I love it! This was my first attempt at making a brittle and the directions were so easy to follow it was a complete success. I love the different nuts in this brittle; it's waaay better than peanut brittle. Thanks a bunch for the recipe, I will being making this again for the holidays. Made for ZWT5.
I made up a batch to bring to my sisters. Everyone dove in and loved the idea of the different nuts. It was delicious, and I got many rave reviews from the peanut gallery :) This will be made again, and I am thinking of making it for Christmas gifts in my edible baskets that I make up each year!
