This was on another board and they stated it came from Country Woman magazine in 2003. I think it is like a cross between toffee and peanut brittle. Please let me know how you like it if you make it. TIA
Chunky Peanut Brittle
1-1/2 tsp. plus 1-1/2 c. butter (no substitutes), divided
2 c. peanut butter chips, divided
1-3/4 c. sugar
3 Tbsp. light corn syrup
3 Tbsp. water
1-1/2 c salted peanuts, coarsely chopped
1/2 c. semisweet chocolate chips
Butter the bottom and sides of a 15 X 10 X 1 inch baking pan with 1-1/2 tsp. butter. Sprinkle with 1 c. peanut butter chips; set aside. In a heavy saucepan, bring sugar, corn syrup, water and remaining butter to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir until butter is melted. Cook, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reads 300 degrees (hard crack stage). Remove from heat; stir in peanuts. Quickly pour onto prepared baking pan. Sprinkle chips over top of brittle. Cool before breaking into pieces. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 2-1/2 lbs.
Edited to state:
Just a note to help clarify the instructions for the brittle.
After you pour the cooked sugar into the pan, then sprikle the top of it with the reserved peanutbutter chips and chocolate chips. Wait a minute or two until the heat from the candy melts them (they still look like chips) before you swirl them together over the top of the brittle. Then let it cool.
