Chocolate Chip Cookie Brittle

Chocolate Chip Cookie Brittle from Table for Seven

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 peanut 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.

Win.Win!

    1. Hi Amy- Yes, the pieces are crunchy, but, have the same taste as a chocolate chip cookie.
