During a visit to my in-laws a few months ago I was first introduced to a prepackaged version of Brownie Brittle. Upon our arrival they were insistent we try this sweet treat. After one bite I was sold and knew I needed to make this recipe healthier for more frequent enjoyment.
While I typically try to create original recipes for this one I decided just to modify an already established recipe. After conducting a “Google” search I was surprised to only find a few recipes available online for “Brownie Brittle”. I decided to modify a recipe from Cookie Madness with my own healthier substitutions. A few recipe substitutions later and a crunchy lower calorie snack was born!
Still wondering what exactly is Brownie Brittle?
In essence Brownie Brittle is a crunchy candy-like flat brownie. The chewy brownie consistency is eliminated and an enormous amount of chocolate goodness is packed into a paper thin treat. If you like brownies you are sure to love brownie brittle! This sweet treat is perfect for your next get together, to pack in the kiddos lunch, or just have around the house for a snack. Did I mention one portion of this snack can be enjoyed for less than 100 calories?!
