This recipe is easy, delicious and addicting. It tastes just like a store-bought candy bar. Hubby thinks it tastes better (He doesn't know he is eating less sugar.) No preservatives or additives, just good taste to satisfy your sweet tooth! This will make a great gift, too. I hope you enjoy my recipe!

How to Make BONNIE'S CHOCOLATE BRITTLE

Step-by-Step

  1. This candy is so easy to make. It tastes just like a regular candy bar with peanuts and a whole lot cheaper. Be careful, because it is addicting!
  2. PREPARE THE PAN
    I use a 9 X 11 pan that used to fit an old toaster, which is the perfect size. Any small pan would do. Just adjust the amount of nuts. You can even make a large pan, but you will have to add more chocolate and nuts, if you do. Line the pan with waxed paper. Make sure the waxed paper covers the lip of the pan.
  3. PREPARE THE NUTS
    I used Planter's lightly salted Dry Roasted Peanuts, which worked perfectly in this recipe.
  4. Pour the Dry Roasted Peanuts into the pan. Use enough peanuts to make one single layer with the nuts close together. Set aside.
  5. PREPARE THE CHOCOLATE
    I used Plymouth Pantry Almond Bark, Chocolate Flavored.
  6. Use 6 squares of the Almond Bark.
  7. Chop the bark.
  8. Melt the chocolate until it is smooth. It takes about ten minutes.
  9. Pour the hot chocolate over the peanuts.
  10. Use a cake frosting knife to smooth the chocolate evenly over the top of the peanuts.

    NOTE!!!! Adding an Update to the Recipe here:
    I add one more layer of nuts to the top, press down with your hands, cover and refrigerate until set. It makes it prettier and about a half inch thicker, and tastes really good with the extra nuts.
  11. FREEZE IT
    Place the pan in the freezer for about 30 minutes to set.
  12. Don't worry about how ugly it looks, because when it sets, the bottom becomes the top, and it will look pretty!
  13. BREAK IT!
    Make sure the chocolate in the pan is firm. Lift the chocolate from the pan with the wax paper, and turn it over, then peel the wax paper away. Break the chocolate brittle into large pieces.
  14. Enjoy!
    Store in the refrigerator in an air tight container.
  15. Everyone loves chocolate!
