Microwave Brittle

This is one of my favorite recipes and I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about it yet. This microwave brittle is amazingly easy to make. Happily I can still eat it because I tested positive to only tree nuts! Happy little peanut legumes.

I can’t even remember where this recipe came from. I’ve had it for so long all I know is I makes it yearly and that it makes great gifts at Christmas time.
