Question Brittle vs. Crunch?

Can anyone tell me the difference between a brittle and a crunch?

I've only heard of crunch being used to describe something with "crunchies" in it--like a candy bar or cookie bar or granola bar type thing. Brittles are cooked sugar and are very hard (and crunchy! )

This is just off the top of my head, though. Maybe there's a true definition out there?

Well, we went to a fiddle show and during intermission, they had all these homemade goodies to snack on for a donation. I chose some peanuts that were crusted with sugar, and they were crunchy, so good. Not like peanut brittle. I tracked the lady down who made them and she is supposed to give me the recipes. She told me she boils the raw peanuts in a sugar syrup, then bakes them in the oven. They were marvelous. I will share the recipe with everyone as soon as I get it from her. I could have eaten a ton of them.
