PEANUT BRITTLE - DIABETIC FRIENDLY

This recipe is made with peanuts, but you can use any nuts, so long as you don’t leave them in chunks larger than peanut size.

Taken from the book-
The Good Goodies

Stan and Floss Dworkin

Sorry no nutritional information available :(

***I can't eat it though...I'm allergic to HONEY! *** :( I don't think It would work with Agave...at least from what I've read...

Directions

1
Lightly grease two baking pans, ( 7 ½ X 3 ½)
Spread the shelled nuts over the bottoms of the two pans.
2
In a medium sauce pan, cook the honey over a very low heat until it tests at “hard ball” stage on your candy thermometer
3
As soon as the honey tests “hard ball” pour it over the two pans. -
Do not wait for the foam to settle, bubbles help to make the candy lighter.
You’ll have to move the pot as you pour, or the honey won’t flow into all the corners.
Scrape out the honey that sticks to the sides into the pans.
4
Allow candy to cool very well, then turn it out of the pans as follows:
Put a large piece of waxed paper on a strong and solid flat surface.
(Such as a cabinet top, or your floor.)
Pick up the pan, turn it over, and holding by the bottom, rap the topside of the pan down on the cabinet top or floor, very flat and very sharply. *You’ll probably need a few raps to get it out.

Thanks for another "diabetic friendly" recipe...=;D I'm loving them.

There had been a post asking if anyone had a recipe for it...thought I'd never find it...that was the only one I found. I was in Walmart today and quickly looked over the sugar-free candy for it in the store...and there was some. I think it was Russell Stover brand. In the green package... they have several kinds of S/F by that brand...some are pretty good. Anyway, thanks for your sweet comments, Cindy!

Penny, we go to the Russell Stover's outlet a couple times a year and I stock up on there sugar-free candies.
My favorite is the sugar-free dark chocolate covered caramels!!!

My oldest Son lives in Hershey, PA so he and his 'lil fam go to the Hershey Store and get me all kinds of sugar-free candies for Christmas.

Excellent!...I have never been up there. I do have a nephew and his family that live in PA. He works for Haliburton...
