This is the best recipe for Peanut Brittle that I have ever tried... It is delicious tasting and is so good that I always get requests at the holidays to make it.... around July too from my son who I tell it is way too hot for peanut brittle in July LOL.. he is always like how long till Christmas??? LOL enjoy

**Just a note this is extemely hot while you are making this, please if you have small children or pets get them OUT of the kitchen while you are making this for this is dangerous if you accidentally spill some while cooking or pouring onto the pan. I place the sheet pan on the other side of my stove to pour so I don't accidentally burn myself or melt my countertop while it is cooling.
