Mock Peanut Brittle

Rated as 4.51 out of 5 Stars

"We grew up munching on this cornflake chewy snack. Of all snacks, this has to be my favorite. After all these years I don't know where this recipe derived from. Didn't have one to follow. Always prepared from memory after being taught by my mom."

Not bad, but I probably won't make this again. I'm not sure where this title came from, but this is nothing like peanut brittle.
