Share a piece of your heart with someone you care about, or better yet, love them to pieces with some handcrafted kindness that’s as unexpected as it is irresistible. We’re talking about the gift of Homemade Peanut Brittle, the sweetest treat that’s often accompanied with a side of uncontrollable smiles.
Friends and family will surely go nuts for this delicious, caramelized, toasty candy that’s embedded with crunchy nuts like pecans, almonds, or peanuts and melts in your mouth in the most delectable way. Some believe that Peanut Brittle originated in the south, so it’s easy to see why we find this wonderful treat oh so charming. As the story goes, a Southern woman invented the nutty dessert by accident in 1890. While attempting to make taffy, she mistakenly added baking soda to the recipe instead of cream of tartar and—voila!—peanut brittle was born.
Sutter Home Cabernet Sauvignon mini bottles make an equally sweet addition to this giftable brittle. Available in a variety of your favorite wines, there’s a mini bottle for everyone you hold dear.
Homemade Peanut Brittle and Sutter Home Cabernet Sauvignon mini bottles give the gift of gratitude they’ll always remember you for.
