A few years ago dietary changes dictated we were no longer allowed peanuts or corn. Since we love Christmas candy I had to come up with a replacement for peanut brittle. This recipe is the result, and what a happy consequence! Nut brittle all grown up. It's sneak attack is surprising and wonderful :)
