      I broke my candy thermometer so I was very happy to find this recipe. The microwave does most of the work. I like the cinnamon flavor of this brittle along with the salt and sugar- YuM. Don't be afraid to get really aggresive with the brittle when spreading it out on the pan. I think next time I'll spread mine a little thinner. I can't wait to share it with my parent volunteers tomorrow. Thank you Pac Baby Mamablowfish- You are so very sweet!
