When my husband came home with 50 pounds of Tootsie Rolls he bought at a discount store, I had to figure out a way to use them-so I came up with this recipe! A red or green M&M's candy atop each piece makes them extra jolly.
This is a nuttier version of a basic brittle recipe. I added macadamia nuts - my favorites - and the brittle turned out tastier than ever. I love making this crisp snack because the results are impressive...and the job goes fast using the microwave.

This is a holiday favorite for gift giving. I coarsely chop some of the candy to sprinkle over ice cream. The remained I break into pieces and dip in melted chocolate to serve alongside. —Rose Randall, Derry, Pennsylvania
