Around here, this week will be all about candy. I have 3 big bags waiting for children in costume that I am promising I won't open till Friday. To tide over your sweet tooth, I made some candy of my own, for a more adult palate. This pecan brittle is sweet from the sugar, but the nuts are spiced with the smoky tones of chili powder for depth and cayenne for heat, as well as some cinnamon and allspice for balance. Turned out mighty tasty.
"Spice up your life" is the theme for this month's Sugar High Friday, hosted by Dessert First and this brittle is my submission.
