I'm still giggling at how fun this was to make. Yes, the sugar boiling (and subsequent crackling and sticking to EVERYTHING) was a teensy bit terrifying, but it was fun! (Also note, meat thermometers are NOT candy thermometers...just saying lol.) The actual brittle has caused some comical conversations in my office this morning, as no one really expects it to be as chewy and sticky as it is. I love it! For once I can eat brittle and not break my teeth (or my diet)!

This is an amazingly yummy brittle. A real nice change in texture from the usual. I followed the recipe to the letter. I found mine hit 190 degrees pretty fast. It is a candy so be prepared for the "scary sugar changes" *heehee* I recommend a helper be on hand at the end since things need to go fast and anything can happen!

This recipe was amazing! It was the easiest brittle I have ever made, and my family liked it more than the tradition peanut brittle (which also carries tons of fat and calories). This is a family favorite and definitely a keeper!

Having always made brittle in the microwave (somehow seems less scary), I did this one by nuking it as well. What a fun combination of brittle and caramel corn! Peanut brittle is usually just a holiday time treat for the family but I think this can be added to a more regular rotation.

I love this because I can make it for my daughter who has a peanut allergy. Now she doesn't feel left out when everyone is having peanut brittle at the holidays. Great!!!
