Deepavali is here! This is one of favourite festivals! Brings back lot of fond memories, from hiding under the bed when I was 4 to lighting the 10000 wala when I was 16. Now that I am so far away from homeland, I try to keep up as much tradition as possible. So to start this Deepavali, here is the first sweet I made. Thanks mom for the recipe.

Mixed Nut Brittle
Ingredients:
Dry toasted Mixed Nut 1 cup (I toased the nuts in the oven at 300 F for 15 minutes)
