Do you have a favorite snack that tastes so delicious, you literally cannot believe how good it is? And maybe you buy a bag of that snack, and sit with the entire bag in your lap and just eat and eat until there’s nothing left in the bag except crumbs, but then you pour the crumbs out of the bag into your hand and lick them off of your palm? Don’t act like you don’t know what I’m talking about.
For me, the sweet snack that makes my head explode is Brownie Brittle, which I first discovered at a food show about three years ago. If you are not yet hip to the Mother of all Sweet Snacks, let me explain that Brownie Brittle is a cookie-like baked treat that tastes like the well-done edges of the Brownie where the batter meets the pan. There are a few lame imitators out there but Sheila G’s Brownie Brittle is the original, and it is just insane.
Brownie Brittle comes in a variety of delicious regular flavors that are available in your local market year-round, but during the Holiday Season each year they come out with few new, seasonal varieties and they always hook me up, because Brownie Brittle is my Holiday snack time jam. This year is no exception. Let me give you a quick run down of these irresistible, available for a-limited-time-only treats so you can add them to your holiday shopping list
The salted caramel chocolate treat is still very much on-trend again, and Browne Brittle leads the charge this Holiday season with its Salted Caramel Brownie Brittle with a Dark Chocolate Drizzle — for added festiveness! Some of you may not know that adding salt to chocolate does not make the treat taste saltier, but rather it enhances the flavor, and makes it taste like the most delicious chocolate on the planet. I brought a bag of Salted Caramel Brownie Brittle to the office to share with my team, and not only was it was devoured within minutes, but my co-workers simply would not shut up about how amazing it was. They are still talking about it.
