Did you ever have peanut brittle growing up? I sure did. My Mom made it a couple times a year, and we really looked forward to it. The smell. Oh my gosh. The smell. Its intoxicating, in the most delicious way possible. I’m no candy maker by any means. I don’t own a candy thermometer. […]

  Turtles.  You know, those little chocolate guys with pecans, caramel and chocolate. Yeah, those.  Aren’t they good?  I wanted to do a Christmas treat that had all the same elements…with an oatmeal base.  Mission accomplished.
