“A very easy-to-make peanut brittle for those of us who are unsuccessful at making brittle the old fashioned way. This recipe was given to me by the dietary manager at a nursing facility where I was employed. I have made it with raw pecans and canned cashews, as well as peanuts and it turns out great whichever nut you use.”
