Peanuts are one of my favorite nuts. I tend to add them to most dishes I prepare. Peanut Brittle or Chikki is a sweet treat that I always enjoyed. At my school they sold them in individual pieces wrapped in wax paper. Another one of my nostalgic treats that had a distinct taste and smell to it. Usually the peanuts are added as a whole in the preparation of most chikki's but the one sold at school had very tiny pieces and they were amazingly tasty. The golden color of the chikki was just the perfect treat to bite into and enjoy. I still look for these in Indian stores here, but hardly find any. So I decided to create my own version of the chikki and send it as my second entry to Paajaka's Chikki and Laddu event.
