Tough Chocolate Nut Candy
The Pistachio Brittle is a Refined Crunchy Holiday Treat

By: Nikki Taylor (Star) Nov 26, 12

If you’re tired of all the cinnamon and peppermint flavors or you just want to try something new, this pistachio brittle recipe will refresh your palette.

The crunchy treats resemble festive mint chocolate bark that are lining the shelves of stores this holiday season, but it does not contain a trace of the stereotypical Christmas ingredients. Your mouth will water over the corn syrup mixture sandwiched between semi-sweet chocolate and then sprinkled with chopped pistachios. The tasty shelled nut is often seen as the more refined member of its family, sporting a sleek covering that is nearly impossible to open at times. Combining it with chocolate and corn syrup creates a satisfying, teeth-sticking pistachio brittle that leaves you smacking your lips.
