I noticed a poll being taken on Facebook, peanut brittle vs almond bark. I was glancing through the comments when I noticed a comment about a sweet and spicy pistachio brittle. I immediately messaged this gal, asking if I could have the recipe. A few days later, she sent it to me. I was sooooo happy!!!

I made it almost right away...YUM...I did change a couple things.

Enjoy! :o)
