Jalapeno-Beer Peanut Brittle
I've been promising my husband a beer-based brittle for a very long time. After letting the idea stew for awhile, I finally came up with a recipe for his new treat! Using roasted, salted peanuts along with a dark, flavorful beer and jalapenos makes this a very "guy friendly" snack.
The way the jalapenos cook in the syrup gives the brittle an even, "low, slow burn", not so in-your-face with the jalapeno kick. Very tasty, even though I can't stand beer!
Note: To make this jalapeno-beer peanut brittle recipe gluten-free, all you need to do is to use a GF beer.
