A picture of salty-sweet perfection, brittle is surprisingly easy to make. Serve it alongside coffee or tea for dessert, and save any leftovers for snacking. Peanuts make a classic brittle, but you can substitute cashews or almonds instead.
Any Nut Brittle: Like the name implies, you can use your favorite nut to make this brittle. If you can bear to give it away, present it in holiday gift tins, available at crafts stores. Better make it small tins!
