Peanut Brittle

Peanut Brittle

I have been making this peanut brittle more years than I care to remember. I got it years ago from a family member. One taste and I was hooked. She made hers so thin it snapped when it broke. If you want it that thin, butter 2 forks and pull the brittle out from the edges right after you pour the brittle onto the marble. Wait until it cools to break it up into pieces.
