The only things I would add to my previous thoughts are:
SWEET seemed to dominate most of the entries at Mobile.
FWIW--may vary by region.
I do not know if the Brittle will be well received by all the judges. Most brittle I have tasted (and I love it) is hard on the teeth
It might work as a decor item--maybe a circle of it around some other "main item" for looks and variety in the presentation
Just thinking out loud!
Go for it--and good luck
