Easy Homemade Peanut Brittle – DIY Valentine’s Day Gift Idea

Homemade gifts make Valentine’s Day special.  So, here’s an idea for a deliciously sweet treat that you can make at home.

Peanut Brittle is a classic candy, that doesn’t cost a lot to make – plus with the recipe below, you can mix it up in just a few minutes in the microwave.  Once your done, and your brittle is cool, break it up and wrap it in pretty Valentine’s Day paper.  You can roll the paper into a cone if you like (pictured above) and include a message of love!  For our loved-ones with nut allergies, try replacing the peanuts with sunflower and pumpkin seeds (here’s a recipe I found at Nom Yum & Free> )
