... Sir Francis Bacon Peanut Butter Brittle.
This stuff is pure evil. Will make you want to give up your first born ...
Go, get some now.
OK, I made my own today, first time I ever made it, I just threw it together.
I got some smoked bacon mis-shapes (was gonna get some lardons for chili anyway) and sliced this quite thin. Threw that in a real hot pan with some veg oil and cookd well.
Removed the bacon and added the peanuts to the fat, stirring them around.
While that was going on, the sugar was melting down. I've had an annoying rock of sugar in the can that I've not been able to break down, so it's a perfect use for it.
so I poured it all in the baking tray (as you can see above), but I didn't have enough sugar. It was all a bit of a guess. Still came out ok, and now I have quite an amount of brittle. No way I can eat it all, but I'll share it. Probably cost me about £4 in ingredients?
I actually meant to ask more questions before making it, but it probably doesn't matter. The bacon I used was like gammon rather than crispy streaky, but I'm not sure it matters.
