National Peanut Brittle Day

January 26 is National Peanut Brittle Day!

Peanut brittle was one of the first types of candy ever made. Although the exact origin is unknown, it is widely believed that the Irish would indulge in sugar coated peanuts for dessert. They later added a type of syrup to the mixture, thus making an early version of peanut brittle.

Celebrate National Peanut Brittle Day by heading over to your favorite confections store to pick some up, or learn how to make your own peanut brittle.
