Homemade brownie brittle is so much better than the store-bought kind

(Sugar Spun Run)

Brownie brittle has grown in popularity lately, and it’s not hard to see why. This crunchy, chocolatey treat has all the deliciousness of a brownie, but with fewer calories — and less guilt. (That means we can eat the whole pan, right?)

While you can buy brownie brittle from the grocery store, this easy homemade version is so much tastier.

Thanks to Sam with Sugar Spun Run for the recipe!
