Chocolate Granola Brittle


  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup light corn syrup
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ cup chocolate granola
  • 3 (1 ounce) squares semi-sweet baking chocolate
  • 1½ tablespoons shortening


  1. Combine sugar, corn syrup and salt in a 2-quart glass bowl. Microwave uncovered on high 5 minutes. Stir in pecans. Microwave 1½ minutes. Stir in vanilla and butter. Microwave one minute and 45 seconds or until candy is color of peanut butter. Stir in baking soda (mixture will bubble).

  2. Quickly pour candy onto a lightly greased rimless baking sheet. (Pour as thinly as possible without spreading candy.) Cover brittle quickly with parchment paper and use a rolling pin to thin out candy; peel off parchment. Sprinkle granola over brittle. Cool brittle completely; break into pieces.

  3. Place chocolate squares and shortening in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave uncovered on high 1½ to 2 minutes, stirring after one minute. Dip each piece of brittle halfway into chocolate mixture. Place dipped brittle on parchment paper to harden. Store in an airtight container.
