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.

super easy, and fantastic results. My entire family loved it, from the grandparents, to the adults, to the kids (who usually complain about having nuts in their desserts). will be making this again!
