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

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...

Ingredients

DIABETIC FRIENDLY - PEANUT BRITTLE
1 c
honey
1 c
raw peanuts, skin on

Directions Step-By-Step

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.

It is so beautiful there (all of PA really), but Hershey has so much history...I'm a History Buff so I love going on all the tours when we are there visiting.
We'll be going again, in June for my oldest Granddaughter's Graduation.

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.
