0 Recipe | "Ex-Boyfriend Brittle" by Ellen Reed

An ex-boyfriend of mine use to make this brittle during the holidays. We would always intend to make it and give it away as gifts, but it never made it past us!....we ate it all! We're still good friends, and I just managed to pry the recipe from him! Can't wait to taste this again. Yay! - Ellen.
