Hancock’s Honey Roasted Peanut Brittle with Chocolate Drizzle

Hancock Peanut Company

This recipe combines the irresistible taste of Hancock’s Honey Roasted Peanuts with a sweet and crunchy brittle, topped with a decadent chocolate drizzle.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup Hancock Honey Roasted Peanuts
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the pan: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly grease it.
  2. Heat sugar, water, and corn syrup: Combine sugar, water, and corn syrup in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly until the sugar dissolves, then bring to a boil.
  3. Cook without stirring: Stop stirring and allow the mixture to boil undisturbed. Watch carefully to avoid scorching. As the mixture cooks, it will turn a golden amber color.
  4. Nut and baking soda addition: Once the mixture reaches a golden amber color, remove from heat and immediately add the Hancock Honey Roasted Peanuts and baking soda. Be cautious, as the mixture will bubble vigorously. Stir quickly to coat the peanuts.
  5. Pour onto baking sheet: Carefully pour the hot mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, spreading it evenly into a thin layer.
  6. Cool and break: Allow the brittle to cool completely at room temperature. Once cool, break the brittle into bite-sized pieces.
  7. Melt chocolate: Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until smooth and melted.
  8. Drizzle chocolate: Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cooled peanut brittle pieces. Let the chocolate set completely before serving.

Tips:

  • Use a candy thermometer to ensure the sugar mixture reaches the correct temperature (300°F or 149°C).
  • Be careful when working with hot sugar mixture, as it can cause burns.
  • For a fun twist, you can add other chopped nuts, dried fruit, or sprinkles before the chocolate drizzle sets.
  • Store the peanut brittle in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
