I have been on the hunt for a sweet holiday treat, without going the cookie route. I opened up my new issue of Cooking Light and found this recipe for Caramel Popcorn Brittle. I love peanut brittle and I love popcorn, so this is an easy choice! Plus you can really add in whatever you want. When I attempt this, I might add in some pretzels and/or mini chocolate chips.....cause adding chocolate is never a bad idea. That may ruin the whole "light" idea, but it's the holidays, so who cares.
On another chocolate note, I went to a food and wine event on Saturday night and at the Picazo717 booth they served their Chocolate & Spanish Blue Cheese Truffles. Chocolate....good, blue cheese....good, Chocolate & Blue Cheese Truffles....delicious! They had a really bizarre flavor, but I went back for more! Definitely an interesting new take on chocolate!
