Crunchy, doubly nutty and utterly delicious. Welcome to these amazing peanut butter brittle cookies.
It has been a while since my last post and if I am honest it feels like I have neglected you all and I feel so bad for this.
Now nothing comes without an excuse, or should I say the valid reason. On this occasion, it was the turbulence of moving home and starting a new role as I was promoted to Warrant Officer Class One in the Army.
If anyone can say that just moving home is an easy feat then I tip my hat off to you…you are my hero.
For us, however, moving home has a deadline due to me having a start date in my new position and that brings with it the many challenges such as timing the move right, finding a property suitable, finding schools for my kids and then making our new home, homely.
So above all this turbulence and excitement, as it is quite exciting having all these new challenges ahead of us, what better way to cheer us up as a family…making cookies.
You know it’s got to be done. I know that if I can’t resist the desire I would buy cookies when I go shopping, grab one when I get a sandwich from the shop. In fact, I would grab them anytime I can and enough to share for the family otherwise it would be like murder.
As part of moving you generally, have a good clear out and this is the same in my kitchen. I also tend to find foods that have been there a while and should be eaten sooner rather than later. This was the case as I found two packets of peanut brittle that my wife bought me on a trip to the seaside. It was then I thought let’s put this in a cookie.
Yes…what a great idea. Adding crunchy peanuts and toffee inside a cookie sounds awesome and to make it extra gorgeous we added peanut butter.
This was the birth of my peanut butter brittle cookies.
Twice the peanut fun in one amazing crunchy and soft cookie.
