Who Can Improve Peanut Brittle? The Candyman Can!

Chocolate Covered Peanut Brittle!

Zingerman’s Candy Manufactory partner Charlie “the Candyman” Frank isn’t reinventing the wheel, he’s just making it more delicious! The latest creation from his candy kitchen is a flavor-charged upgrade of classic peanut brittle. Jumbo Runner peanuts jut like boulders from a shiny, golden candy sea. The texture looks silky but shatters in crisp shards with each bite. To achieve this consistency Charlie makes small batches by hand with a watchful eye. This is stovetop brittle, not factory gristle, with butterscotch-brown flavor, sharp, crackly texture, and a finishing savor of roasted peanuts. And now Charlie has taken it one step further and enrobed his brittle in the same delicious dark chocolate that coats his Zzang! Candy Bars!

Chocolate Peanut Brittle Kate Bernot, of Serious Eats describes our peanut brittle this way:

“A peanut brittle so simple, yet so compulsively munchable, that it could reverse the decades-long trend of brittle under-appreciation.”

You can buy this delicious treat at the Zingerman’s Bakehouse, the Roadhouse, or the Deli. Or, have it shipped right to your own kitchen from Zingerman’s Mail Order!
