This is my mom’s recipe. Everyone who was lucky enough to get peanut brittle as a gift at Christmas time always said she made the best every. The gifts of peanut brittle were loved and cherished by all. Dad would always check the barometer and weather to make sure the peanut brittle would set up correctly. Now that our parents are gone, we have very special memories!
