I just ordered peanut brittle from See's Candies in California, some of the best I ever had.

No doubt See's makes some great candies ;) . . . try the Cruzer's ^^^^^^ post 1, and I like Doofy's spin on it with the Spanish peanuts.

Does anyone remember the round, red peanut patty that was about 1/2" thick? It might have a Texas thing.

What I miss the most are "Fried Pies" not baked. Peach and apricot were my favorites.

I've made a TON of "brittle"...

I like to double the amount of peanuts, IF I use peanuts, but I've also made it with most all the hard nuts, like almonds.

I like macadamia nuts in it best!
