Already putting off picking up presents for the looming "Giving Season"? If so, you should try making this deliciously nutty brittle from Al Di La in Brooklyn. It can be put together in almost no time at all and, as an added bonus, the base recipe uses ingredients that you probably already have on hand: sugar, corn syrup, baking soda, butter and salt. After that, the fun part is choosing which crunchy additions you want to incorporate. While peanuts are a classic go-to, the recipe will also work with almonds, pepitas, pine nuts and even bacon. So get creative—and then, whenever you have time, work on whipping up a batch. If you decide not to wait until the last minute, the brittle will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one month.
