My grandmother used to always make peanut brittle for Christmas. When she got too old to continue the tradition, my father took over. He passed away last year and I did not have the family brittle recipe to continue the tradition. This toffee is so wonderful. Without the chocolate it is so much like grandmas brittle. With the chocolate, it adds a personal twist as I LOVE chocolate. :)
Thank you so much for helping me carry on our family's tradition!
My mother says the base of this toffee tastes much better than grandmas brittle, which is quite a compliment as everyone anticipated grandmas brittle come Christmas. This is also really easy and my sister and I had so much fun making this, carrying on the tradition. I'll have to share this recipe with my cousins so they'll be able to carry the tradition too.
Imagine the very yummiest peanut brittle ever (or cashew which is waft I used), now add melted Guittard milk chocolate over it. Delish! Guittard is more expensive than Tollhouse morsels but the chocolate flavor is much more intense. Even my husband who is not a big toffee or brittle fan loved this!
