this is a great gift for the holidays

"The flavor is amazing! I thought 2 cups of peanuts was a bit too many for the amount of candy coating. Next time I will try it with just 1 cup and adjust from there. This recipe is my first success with peanut brittle, I've tried before but not with fantastic results like this!"

Thank you, the last recipe I had for brittle left me sad and unfulfilled. Yours is the opposite of that, much gratitude.

I am going to try this for Christmas. It sounds super easy. A couple of questions, is the baking soda necessary? What does it do?

Good flavour, used 2 cups peanuts and agree 1 1/2 would have been better to properly cover all the peanuts.

Great flavor and pretty easy. Next time I am going to use only 1/2 cups peanuts.
