Peanut butter brittle (soft crunchy peanut butter candy)

gourmandadventurer Mar 22, 2010 07:59 PM

If you're a west coaster you might know See's peanut crunches and california crunches. I'd love to know how to make that kind of peanut butter filling and I have a feeling it might be "peanut butter brittle."

I've seen a few recipes involving pb, corn syrup, sugar and water. Have you ever made it or do you have a recipe for this, which is one of my fave things ever?

If so does it work just as well with natural pb?

Thanks!

    if you search the Web for "soft peanut brittle" you'll find a surprising number of links (though they're all pretty similar). i've never made it myself, but the recipes from Cookie Madness are usually pretty reliable, so i'd suggest trying hers to start:
