 Finest Peanut Brittle Candy


I love peanut brittle. There is nothing like making a batch from scratch and tasting it as soon as it cools. This is actually really fast to make. Start to finish is about 30 minutes. Make sure you measure the butter and baking soda ahead of time. The temperature goes quickly from 220-300.
