How To Make Champagne Cashew Peanut Brittle

how to make peanut brittleI love peanut brittle, but I had no idea how to make peanut brittle until a few weeks back. Once I had the basic steps down, I decided to improve it a bit and make a recipe for peanut brittle that was all my own. Here it is! How to make Champagne Cashew Peanut Brittle!

This is a great recipe to make and give as gifts. It’s not the “break your teeth” hard peanut brittle of your childhood either. If you stir it vigorously enough, and whip enough air into it, you will wind up with an easy to eat and great tasting brittle. Feel free to mix the nuts up with whatever type you prefer.
