How to Make Easy Brittle Candy
Here's a great way to rid yourself of all that left over holiday candy! This easy candy is made with almond bark and has a similar look and consistency to peanut brittle. It can be made on short notice (20 minutes) and is simple enough for children to make (with adult supervision).
One package of almond bark. May be either vanilla or chocolate.
Any leftover hard candies
Unwrap the hard candies (candy canes, etc)
Place the candies in a heavy plastic resealable bag.
Crush the candies by hitting them with a spoon or hammer.
Place the crushed candies in a bowl and set aside.
Line a baking pan with aluminum foil.
Melt the almond bark according to package directions.
Stir the crushed candies into the melted Almond Bark.
Pour the mixture onto the lined cookie pan.
Use the spatula to smooth out the candy.
Chill the mixture.This may be done at room temperature, or the pan may be placed in the fridge for faster chilling.
Break the hardened mixture into pieces for distribution and eating.
- Use one flavor of crushed candy at a time. Mixed candies can give unusual flavors to the finished product. (ie: Brach's Christmas Candy mix ends up tasting like bubblegum and/or toothpaste when crushed together and mixed into vanilla almond bark.)
- Scoring the hardened mixture before breaking allows you to break it into more evenly sized pieces.
- Recommendations for chocolate bark:
- Peppermints and/or any mints
- Nuts (without hulls or shells!)
- Hard Caramels
- Recommendations for vanilla bark:
- Fruit Flavored Candy Canes.
- Any candy "mixes".
