The Brittle Factory
I’ve been making this peanut brittle since the early 80’s. It started as a product for a high school bake sale. I made some for family Christmas gifts that year and an uncle fell in love with it. He said he liked it better than See’s Candies peanut brittle. Once that happened I made it every year for gifts. My family would joke every year about how long before Christmas ‘The Brittle Factory’ would “open”.
I’d continued over the years to make peanut brittle as gifts for my family. When my husband and I moved into Silverado Canyon in 2005, I started to gift some to our neighbors. All the neighbors said the same thing: “You should sell this stuff”, they even gave it a nick name: “Canyon Crack”.
Ten years and many, many batches of peanut brittle later I applied for and received a Class A Cottage Food Operation permit for Orange County, CA.
The Brittle Factory is now a reality.
