I remember the first time my mom made this recipe.  We were going on a little road trip to Washington DC and she sent along with a bag of this brittle for us to snack on during the trip.

I don’t think we made it out of Pennsylvania before the entire bag was devoured.

It is the perfect combination of salty and sweet.  And, it goes perfectly with a big cup of coffee.  There is just something about the combination of chocolate, pecans, and coffee.
