Chocolate Chip Brittle

    45 minutes

    A nice variant on the ever-popular chocolate chip biscuit - this is baked in a large sheet and then broken into pieces. Interesting!

    Too rich and not in a good way. I even tried adding bananas (as one of the reviews said) but I didn't like it. My brother (who eats anything) said it was pretty good. You should be the judge!!  -  01 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    YUM! This came out just the way I wanted it to! I didn't have any eggs so that is why I originally used this recipe...YUM!  -  19 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I picked this recipe because it doesn't have eggs in it and I wanted to bake it with my toddler. The flavor was too strong, almost bitter, and the texture made it hard to chew. Maybe I did something wrong, but I won't be making this again. On the plus side, the dough didn't taste as bad as the finished cookie, so it would be good if you want that raw dough taste without worrying about salmonella!  -  09 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
