Excellent Peanut Brittle

I went to a Holiday craft show four years ago. A very cute and sweet grandma was selling her peanut brittle and it was selling fast! She told me that if I wanted some I had better get it now! After buying a package and sampled it I fell in love! "It was just perfect".
I asked her for the recipe and she wasn't shy about giving it out.
Her secret was to pour your mixture onto the cookie sheet and DO NOT spread. The bubbles are needed to make it "Brittle". I never saw her again but did get a very special gift from her that I wanted to share.
(No salt, no butter) Excellent!
