This super easy seven ingredient Peanut Brittle is made on the stove top in less than thirty minutes. It is absolutely delectable and makes for great holiday gift giving. I like to give it along with Party Worthy Eggnog Truffles and Chocolate Pecan Caramel Turtles as hostess gifts during the holidays!
