140 g salted peanuts
200 ml whipping cream 
280 g Dansukker Light Syrup
170 g Dansukker Granulated sugar

150 g dark chocolate


Chop the peanuts and set aside.

Boil the cream, syrup and sugar in a saucepan. Boil until the temperature reaches 145°C, then remove from the heat. Add most of the peanuts, keeping 50 ml of them aside for decoration.

Pour the mixture onto a sheet of parchment paper, spread it out and leave to set.

Chop the chocolate, melt it over a water bath and spread it over the toffee. Sprinkle with the rest of the peanuts.

Leave to cool completely, then break into pieces to serve.

Tip: Instead of peanuts, you can make this brittle with other delicious salted nuts such as pistachios or cashews.
