Review This Recipe
I had used a mixture of both chopped almonds and cashews instead of peanuts(since my family loves almonds and cashews) adding a pinch or two of baking soda(so that my grandma could break it easily) and it came out so well that,my grandma said, "hey, this brittle is so brittle, lovely and easy to bite,where did you learn it from?" I could no longer resist myself from telling the truth, which she truly appreciated with a nod of approval!
