Low Carb Creations makes Gourmet Soft Almond, Peanut, Hazelnut Brittles.
Most of the LC net sellers have it. It's really good stuff.

well the problem is it is only sugar peanuts and butter really. so you can't
really make the same thing low carb.

Can't think of how it would work without sugar. There are sugar
substitutes, but I don't think there are any that would have the glue-like
quality of real sugar.

Also, giving a food gift to someone who is trying to lose weight seems kind
of . . . well, you know. Not so great. Plus, I mean, if she eats it, it's
gone! Why not give her something she could keep forever?

How's she been doing with low-carb? Has she lost a lot of weight? Maybe
she'd like some new, smaller clothes, lol.

Yes, she has lost a lot of weight and I have a couple well though out
gifts, but she was just telling me tonight of this horrible craving she
has been having for Peanut Brittle, I was just going to try to find a
recipie for low carb peanut brittle if I could and stick it in her
gift, so if she wanted to she coudl make it. I thought of what you
said about not giving a food gift to a dieter after I posted it, but if
the recipe is out there I would still like to give it to her...but I
can see how if it is just sugar butter and peanuts that splenda
probably would not make it set up the same. I really did not know what
was in it because personally I hate it and don't ever eat it, must have
something to do with breaking a braces bracket on it when I was a
kid!:)

Anyway, she is my inspiration because she lost all of this weight with
low carb and I am really jealous so I am getting on the bandwagon for
the first time. I lost 40 pounds a year ago by just cutting back on
what I eat but I was so hungry and miserable that I cannot do that
again, I have kept it off. When I started I was going to lose 80
pounds, hit 40 and plateaued and then gave up...haven't gained any back
but I want to wear the size 6 and 8 that she is wearing now. We were
the same size in HS.

I was tempted to use The Queen of Cans and Jars' nasty Google link, but I
decided to be nice.

Here, I did all the hard work for you and entered "low carb peanut brittle
recipe" in the search field in Google. Here are the 5,170 results that
popped up in exactly .19 seconds:

there is really no sugar substitute that works just like sugar. to make a
brittle you cook the sugar to a certain temp so when it cools it is a hard candy
there is no fake sugars that will do that. atleast not ones consumers can get
ahold of.

Use a regular recipe and substitute a sugar alcohol such as maltitol or
diabetisweet (isomalt). It will give you the texture of sugar. Consider
using a combination of sugar alcohol and splenda.
