Peanut Butter Saltine Brittle

From the December/January 2016 issue of Eat Drink Mississippi 


Butter flavored non-stick cooking spray

1/2 cup butter

3/4 cup creamy peanut butter

1 cup granulated sugar

1 sleeve (4 ounces) regular saltine crackers

2 cups milk chocolate chips

1/2 cup peanut butter chips

1/2 cup roughly chopped, dry-roasted, salted peanuts

Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a 10-by-15-by-1-inch pan with foil. Spray foil with butter-flavored nonstick cooking spray; set aside. 

In heavy duty, 1-quart saucepan, heat butter, peanut butter, and sugar over medium heat. Stir constantly until butter and sugar are melted. Bring ingredients to a boil; stir frequently for 3 minutes. 

While mixture cooks, lay saltines flat in single layer on prepared pan. Pour cooked mixture evenly over the saltines. Place in oven and cook 5 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over top. Let cool for 3 minutes, then spread chocolate completely over saltines. 

Sprinkle peanut butter chips evenly over top of chocolate. Return pan to oven for 1 minute to soften chips. Pull tines of fork through softened peanut butter chips to partially cover the chocolate. Sprinkle peanuts over top and gently press down. 

Let cool on rack for about 15 minutes; place in freezer for 3 minutes. Remove from freezer and break into pieces. Store in airtight container.
