"Growing up, this Old Fashioned Peanut Brittle was a staple in our house during the holidays. My mother counts peanut brittle as her 2nd favorite dessert of all time, and she would always keep a can of brittle on the countertop during the holiday season. Truthfully, this old fashioned peanut brittle would make a great treat anytime during the year, but I always associate it with the holidays. For the record, my mom and I both have the same favorite dessert – English toffee. Peanut brittle is certainly a close relative – a cousin, perhaps? – of toffee, so it’s safe to say that this batch of brittle didn’t last long in our house! Next time, I should try adding chocolate to the top similar to that toffee. It would be like chocolate covered peanuts…just in brittle form!"
