I made this one year for my brother in law who loves Pistachios. Excellent Brittle. Perfect every time. I make it every year!
Easy directions. Really great, buttery taste. Made two full sheet pans. I made this for Valentines Day since everyone already gets so much chocolate. I now have to hide it so that there is some left to hand out! Everyone has been picking at the edges!
This is the second candy recipe that I have downloaded from Land O Lakes. Aunt Betty's Caramels are DIVINE! The best caramels I have ever had - bar none! I am off to make them next.
