VIDEO RECIPE: Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Brittle

Salty, sweet, crunchy. Totally satisfying. Who doesn’t love peanut brittle? And this brittle’s been infused with Peanut Butter & Co Dark Chocolatey Dreams which adds chocolate and peanut butter flavor to the crispy candy. You’ll never go back to plain old brittle after trying this! 

This recipe is from our new cookbook 31 Days of Dark Chocolate Dreams which contains a month’s worth of decadent recipes featuring Peanut Butter & Co Dark Chocolatey Dreams, all natural peanut butter blended with rich dark chocolate. 

  • Yield:1 pound brittle
  • Prep Time:20 Minutes
  • Cook Time:1 Hour cooling time
  • Total Time:20 Minutes, plus 1 hour cool time


Nonstick cooking spray 

2 cups roasted, salted peanuts 

1½ cups sugar 

½ cup light corn syrup 

¼ tsp. salt 

½ cup Peanut Butter & Co Dark Chocolatey Dreams

1 tbsp. unsalted butter 

¼ tsp. vanilla extract 

1 tsp. baking soda 


  1. Spray an 11×17-inch sheet pan with nonstick cooking spray and place the peanuts on the pan in a single layer.

  2. Place the sugar, corn syrup, salt, and 1/4 cup water in a tall saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a strong simmer, stirring occasionally. 

  3. Continue stirring until the mixture reaches the “hard-crack stage” (see tip below) or a kitchen thermometer registers 300°F. 

  4. Remove from the heat and stir in the Peanut Butter & Co Dark Chocolatey Dreams, butter, and vanilla extract. Carefully stir in baking soda as the mixture will increase in volume dramatically. 

  5. Immediately pour the mixture over the peanuts on the prepared sheet pan and, using an offset spatula, spread until ¼-inch thick. Let cool for 1 hour before breaking into large pieces. Store in an airtight container, unrefrigerated, for at least 2 weeks.
