    Chunky Peanut Brittle

    Source of Recipe


    List of Ingredients

    1-1/2 teaspoons plus 1-1/2 cups butter (no substitutes), divided
    2 cups peanut butter chips, divided
    1-3/4 cups sugar
    3 tablespoons light corn syrup
    3 tablespoons water
    1-1/2 cups salted peanuts, coarsely chopped
    1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips


    Butter the bottom and sides of a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan with 1-1/2 teaspoons of butter. Sprinkle with 1 cup peanut butter chips; set aside.

    In a heavy saucepan, bring sugar, corn syrup, water and remaining butter to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir until butter is melted. Cook, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reads 300 (hard-crack stage).

    Remove from heat; stir in peanuts. Quickly pour onto prepared baking pan; sprinkle with chocolate chips and remaining peanut butter chips. With a knife, gently swirl softened chips over top of brittle. Cool before breaking into pieces. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 2-1/2 pounds.
