The classic peanut brittle is an iconic treat during the holidays. It’s a representation of homely sweetness that fits right into cozy winter ambiance. This gourmet candy has always been a regular member during this season with my family and it’s so pretty packaged in cellophane bags or decorative tins for holiday gift giving. It’s a versatile tasty treat that is satisfying enough for sweet and salt lovers alike.
I discovered homemade peanut brittle at its finest by a lovely artisan in Temecula, CA. Home Spun Brittle has been artfully creating melt in your mouth peanut brittle for well over a decade. If you are like me and worry that traditional peanut brittle year after year can become a bit tiresome, then variety is not an issue with Home Spun Brittle. With roasted pistachios to crunchy pecans and cashews, they offer an epicurean selection of unique flavors of gourmet candies to suit countless tastes. You are sure to find a favorite among a light and airy version of the timeless classic Old-fashioned Peanut Brittle and other deliciously daring flavors such as Tropical, Chocolate Brownie, Chili, Banana Nut, Apple Pie, Pumpkin, , Cherry, Cocoa Pecan, Candy Apple and Peppermint. When I’m in search of the best flavors for more traditional tastes, I prefer the tender Butter Pecan Brittle or even the simple pleasure of No-Nut Brittle in chocolate or vanilla flavors.
It’s easy to go nuts for peanut brittle during the holiday season with the selection from Home Spun Brittle. The gourmet candy is available freshly made to order and shipped anywhere via mail. However, if you want to meet the makers of this decadent goodness in person, you will have to head down to Temecula, CA on a Saturday. You can find them at the Old Town Temecula Farmer’s Market, on the corner of 6th and Front Street, every Saturday morning. We like to stop by during our occasional wine tasting trips out to the Temecula Wine Country, but for the holidays, I will definitely be preordering or perhaps have the gift tins shipped out to my friends and family. I love the Three Variety Tin, it’s perfect for giving a taste of more than one flavor. You can select from any of the flavors they have to offer. Be careful though, it’s addictive. I love Home Spun Peanut Brittle all year long.
