Mock Peanut Brittle

"We grew up munching on this cornflake chewy snack. Of all snacks, this has to be my favorite. After all these years I don't know where this recipe derived from. Didn't have one to follow. Always prepared from memory after being taught by my mom."

Not bad, but I probably won't make this again. I'm not sure where this title came from, but this is nothing like peanut brittle.

My mom used this same type of recipe when I was growing up, however she made it in drop style clusters. My kids have never had them before and was glad that some one recommended me this recipe. ...
