Vegan Peanut Brittle

Vegan Peanut Brittle

I am truly a fool for giving out a recipe like this for free, when I should be raking in royalties from the American Dental Association instead. Consider this fair warning: don’t even think about making peanut brittle if you’ve personally funded the college educations of two of your orthodontist’s kids, okay?

I hate to play favorites, especially when it comes to chocolate, but for me, pecan clusters were always the highlight of those...
