Chocolate Nut Brittle

  • Yield: 16 servings

Recipe courtesy of Nuts for Life (


  • 2 cups of mixed nuts – (e.g., walnuts, pecans, almonds, cashews, hazelnuts and macadamias)
  • 7 ounces of chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons of nut butter (e.g., almond butter)
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil


  1. Roughly crush nuts – this can be done by placing them in a high-speed blender or food processor and quickly pulsing (be careful not to make them into a nut butter). Alternatively, place them into a snap lock bag and roll with a rolling pin, or roughly chop with a knife.
  2. Line a baking tray with oiled parchment paper.
  3. Spread the crushed nuts evenly over the parchment paper and then set aside.
  4. Melt your chocolate – this can either be done in a microwave, stirring a few times, or on a stove top using the double boiler method.
  5. Once melted, quickly pour hot chocolate evenly over nuts to completely cover. Drizzle with nut butter.
  6. Place in the freezer for a few hours or overnight.
  7. Remove from freezer, lift out brittle and break into pieces.

Tip: Store in an airtight container for up to 1 month or freeze for up to 3 months.
