My #PeanutBrittle Was a Huge Success at My #WerthersBakingBash

Disclosure: Mom Select, and Werther’s, provided me with lots of caramel – for my participation. Any thoughts, opinions, and/or testimonials expressed herein are my own (or that of my family’s).

I love caramel…especially if they’re Werther’s…and – just so you know (because this is how much I love their caramels), if they ever sold a Werther’s Original Coffee Creamer, I’d so have that stalked in my fridge.

I received a package last week, for a Werther’s Original Baking Bash MommyParty. My treat – peanut brittle…and I made it for the first time ever…and it was the best peanut brittle I’ve ever tasted (no lies!). Here’s my pictures (Piper helped me), and after I’ll share the recipe (hint-hint…everything in this next picture pretty much covers it).

Confession Time:: the girls and I obsessively ate the baking caramels; we couldn’t resist. We were supposed to share a lot of them with our guest, and we did – for the most part, but they taste sooo good (different from the original soft caramels, but just as delicious!) we just couldn’t keep our hands out of the bags.

    We always made peanut brittle for Dad at Christmas, never thought about using Werther’s, I am going to have to try this recipe. Thanks Barb for sharing

    • I never thought it could be done using werther’s…how simple it’d be to make and – more specifically – how delicious they would turn out! They’re a hit!!! You should definitely try the recipe. :)

    Oh my gosh that looks great. I wonder about using the werther’s caramel apple candies to make something similar–yum!

    • They were divine Renee…absolutely sinful!!!
      I actually plan on using their caramel coffee hard candies the next time I make brittle. I bet it’d taste awesome – a coffee lover’s dream for sure :)
