I made peanut brittle last night. It was the first time I have tried and after I burnt the first batch of sugar, which made the whole house smell like toasted marshmellows, I succeeded. The recipe was from cookbook author Carole Bloom. I took a class with her at the cooking school in town and she made them. Hers was the best brittle I ever had so I had to try and make it for Christmas. She dipped hers in chocolate, which I might do, but I liked it plain. It was an easy recipe to follow and except for my burning sugar, it came out perfectly. I liked the fact that I didn't need to use a candy themometer. I should have some more of her recipes up in a few days. Yum yum.
