Nut brittles are a sweet mail-order discovery

We were strolling around ritzy Lake Arrowhead Village in San Bernardino County last week, surrounded by forests and mountains, when we spotted a display of homemade nut brittles set up on a little table. Turned out that elementary-school teacher Bridget Colburn sells her handmade brittles at farmers and artisan markets (as was the case at the Village) and in a few bakeries.
