Chocolate Chip Cookie Brittle
November 07, 2012
I wanted to bake something. I wanted to eat something sweet. I had a giant bag of chocolate chips and was pondering what to make with them. I did not want to go to the store for additional ingredients either. I got so lucky. This recipe fell into my lap! Well..figuratively. My computer lap. My Internet lap? Anyway..after a short time of searching..Tada...Brittle! Mmph..brittle? I wasn't familiar, but, it sounded interesting and yummy. These are crunchy, chocolaty peanuty awesome-ness. They are also can be made in a cinch, because, they don't take long to bake and the ingredients are usually stocked in your pantry.
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
2 cups chocolate chips, divided
1 cup chopped peanuts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 15x10 in jelly roll pan lightly with non stick cooking spray. In a mixing bowl, beat butter, sugar and vanilla. Slowly, add in flour. Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips and peanuts. Press into prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
Melt remaining 1 cup of chocolate chips on low heat. Drizzle or pipe over brittle. Let chocolate set completely, then, break brittle into pieces.
