Some Really Really Good Peanut Brittle?

jbludwig Dec 6, 2010 10:02 AM

Every year end, when I lived in Michigan, one of the local churches sold peanut brittle at the local mall. It was splendelicious--full of peanuts, thin, rich, crunchy brittle. I know that locals love Mrs. See's brittle, but where can SFBA brittle worshipers find even better? While I'm at it--spanish peanuts, roasted peanuts, THIN brittle!

          I saw a fancy peanut brittle -- might have been the "virginia" mentioned in the previous post -- at Berkeley Bowl, at the end of an aisle in the back of the store. It seemed expensive to me.
          My dentist would LOVE for me to eat peanut brittle -- he could make another payment on his yacht.

              Try Candy Darling on Sutter Street (at Jones) in San Francisco. I would call before going over because I do not know how often they make it and if it is available all the time.
