Too late for holiday gift giving, but if you’re into candy, especially the homemade gourmet stuff, try some of Thomasina’s Cashew Brittle.

I briefly met Thomasina Petrus, a local singer and actress, when the Twin Cities Women’s Choir taped a show at the Fitz in March with Ann Reed and assorted guests. Thomasina made a comment about this cashew brittle and I thought, “Huh. Okay.” Nine months later I ran into her at the Women’s Art Festival at the Midtown Y, manning a booth.

Thomasina’s Cashew Brittle has no preservatives added and is always made with the finest ingredients, grade AA butter and Bergin’s Nut Company cashews.

It tastes like delicious!

Thomasina’s Cashew Brittle is also available at Kowalski’s, but you get more for your money if you order directly from her — 1lb 5oz for $15 from the website, vs 1lb at Kowalski’s.

We placed our order on December 15 and Thomasina herself showed up at our door to deliver it in time for Christmas. She came all the way to Eden Prairie (with a huge smile to boot), and I’m pretty sure she had not even been out here before. You’ll probably just get yours in the mail, though.
