Default Repost: How to Keep Peanut Brittle well.....brittle?

I make my brittle and keep it in ziplock bags, which works fine.
However, once they come out of the bag, much like meringues, they
absorb moisture and become gooey.

Is there anything that can be done to avoid this? I realize it's the
nature of the beast, but maybe some suggestions?

Thanks

Well shucks, my brittle is sooo good it doesn't last long enough for
such a problem. :-)

Sugar is hydroscopic so it natually absorbs moisture, causing it to
break down. To prevent this, keep it in ziplock bags and place in the
freezer. It will not change the consistency of the brittle but will
slow down the process. Make sure that the bags are sealed well or they
will take on the odors of the freezer-yuck.
