1. Make this. No, seriously. It’s so tasty If you don’t your taste buds are going to cry. The trickiest part of brittle is watching it get up to heat. This recipe for Chocolate-Dipped Banana Nut Brittle is really easily spelled out for beginners. Takes the questioning out of the whole candy making experience. I used margarine instead of butter making it vegan.
2. Make enough to share. I made a half batch, because you know… there’s only 2 of us at home. I took the photos in the morning yesterday and ended up eating brittle for dinner when I got home from work. I would have had brittle for breakfast had I actually tried it in the morning. There are nuts and bananas in it, I guess that’s healthy, right?
3. Be creative. Brittle candy doesn’t just have to have peanuts. This one has dried banana chips. Use whatever nuts you like, chop them up a bit if they are kind of big (like brazil nuts). Think about things you would toss in a trail mix or granola. It would be awesome in this. Seriously. Be creative and share!
