Chocolate Peanut Brittle

Recipe: chocolate peanut brittle

Sometimes you need an indulgent treat, and this really (and I mean REALLY) hits the spot. Crunchy, sweet, decadent and salty – it’s the way peanut brittle *should* always have been! Plus, the weather is now officially autumnal and cold so this is part of my comfort food therapy!


  • 150g caster sugar
  • 250g pack of salted peanuts, roughly chopped (or bashed with a rolling pin)
  • 100g plain chocolate


I used a silicone baking tray for this recipe, but if you’re using a regular baking tray you’ll need to brush it with oil and line with baking parchment.

Place the sugar in a saucepan with 100ml of water and heat gently until the sugar is dissolved. Bring to the boil and boil for about 10 minutes until the syrup is a deep amber coloured caramel.

Remove from the heat and stir in the peanuts and tip straight into your baking tray. Spread in a thin layer and leave to harden.

Melt your chocolate. Invert your peanut brittle and spread the flat side with the melted chocolate. Leave to set then break into chunky pieces.

    I intended to post you this very little remark to help thank you very much yet again with your beautiful methods you have discussed above. It has been quite extremely generous of you to make easily all that numerous people could possibly have advertised for an e book to get some bucks for their own end, most notably considering that you could possibly have tried it if you ever considered necessary. Those things as well worked as a good way to understand that other people have similar dreams the same as my very own to realize very much more with reference to this matter. I believe there are numerous more pleasant situations ahead for individuals that looked over your site.

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be
    running off the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a
    formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to
    let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon.
