I couldn't tell you the last time I had peanut brittle but after I was offered a sample of this chardonnay wine brittle after asking an employee if it was worth the money, I have become an addicted fan!
Annette of Annette's Chocolates and her brother Brent make all of their candy and brittle at their Napa Valley shop. The sweet taste of the butter and wine along with the crunchy spanish peanuts combine to make this a delicious yet light and crispy brittle that you have to experience to know this is not just something you can buy anywhere. You can bite off a piece easily or snap a larger piece into smaller ones without a problem. It hardly ever sticks to your teeth unless you have way too much in your mouth (I've done that!).
The ingredients are spanish peanuts, sugar, corn syrup, butter, chardonnay wine, vanilla, baking soda and salt. A serving size is 1-1/2 oz. and 180 calories (worth every sinful one to me).
If you're a fan of peanut brittle or looking for a great party snack, a half time treat, or something special for the man or woman in your life, this brittle comes in several more flavors: beer brittle, firey brittle (a beer brittle with a kick), triple nut brittle (pistachios, pecans, almonds, bourbon & bbq spice) and Annette's traditional brittle. Yummmmm!!
You can shop for this brittle along with their chocolates, truffles and sauces, all infused with wine, at their Napa Valley store or they will ship to you anywhere is the U.S. Check out their website at www.annettes.com.
