Original recipe from Sondra Eckel Bohannon. Sondra and I had a girl scout troop out at Camp Weideman (where Uncle Paul Fling was Ranger). We had planned on making peanut brittle but forgot sugar. We got sugar from Aunt Violet. Then realized we had no place to pour peanut brittle to cool. Girls said we had aluminum foil and could pour it on foil on sidewalk. It worked. I call it my 2-2-2-2 peanut brittle recipe.
