Peppermint Brownie Bark

Sunday, December 2, 2012


Have you ever heard of Sheila G’s Brownie Brittle?  If you have, then you’ll understand my little addiction.  You know those crispy edges and baked –on splatters around the edge of the brownie pan – the ones you pick off and nibble on when nobody’s looking?    Well, Sheila G. figured out a way to create whole batches of just those crunchy bits, and Brownie Brittle was born.  Think of it as a paper thin, shatteringly crisp, intensely chocolaty wafer cookie – that tastes just like a brownie.    That Sheila G. is brilliant, I tell you – brilliant!  It’s like she does liposuction on a rich, fudgy brownie and sucks out all of the chewy, gooey stuff inside.    Her Brownie Brittle comes in little bags that reach out and grab you as you walk past them in the supermarket.  I kid you not.  They also taunt you their sultry, cocoa-laced voices.  “Come and get me, Hot Stuff!  You know you want to.”    Sigh…  But, at over four bucks a pop for a 4-ounce bag, there’s only so much seduction I can indulge in.

Once my frugal side kicked in, I did what any other self-respecting food blogger would do.  I went online to see if I could find the recipe.  Genius that she is, that Sheila G. is no fool either.  She must have her recipe locked up tighter than a drum, because I couldn’t find it.   And, I’m a Google maniac.  What I did find, however, were a couple of recipes that looked a lot like my beloved Brownie Brittle.  So I decided to pick one and give it a try.   read more >>
