Peppery Peanut Brittle

A touch of hot pepper sauce gives a unique zip to this crunchy confection from Janie Sanders of Vicksburg, Mississippi. "We call it blistering brittle," she says. The mixture reaches hard-crack stage in the microwave, so you don't even need a candy thermometer for this brittle.

Aunt Rose's Fantastic Butter Toffee

I don't live in the country, but I love everything about it—especially good old-fashioned home cooking! Every year, you'll find me at our County Fair, entering a different recipe contest. I find new recipes everywhere—especially in my large cookbook collection. This toffee, however, comes from the "heart". It's been a favorite in my family since I was a little girl!

These pretty coconut-speckled candies are rolled in grated chocolate, but you could also coat them in finely chopped nuts, chocolate sprinkles or jimmies. Beverly Coyde of Gasport, New York substitutes almond extract for the vanilla and chopped toasted almonds for the contest.
