    it sounds good, but not good to spend the money on nuts or peanuts to make it..

    the brittle was not very hard but chewy and stuck really badly to my teeth. the spicy part was good but not worth the trouble to eat

    This was wonderful, I got comments from people who are not usually quick to give praise. I would definately make it again.
