We love the nut brittles and we love popcorn. It makes me want to melt chocolate and drizzle that over top.

This is different. My kids will love this stuff. I usually make caramel corn for them during the holidays. This will be a pleasant change. Love the idea of putting granola in with it.

I used to love peanut butter brittle until I developed allergies. Now I can make this and enjoy brittle again. Sounds like you are a great cook. Can I come for supper some night? lol
