I remember the first time my mom made this recipe.  We were going on a little road trip to Washington DC and she sent along with a bag of this brittle for us to snack on during the trip.

I don’t think we made it out of Pennsylvania before the entire bag was devoured.

It is the perfect combination of salty and sweet.  And, it goes perfectly with a big cup of coffee.  There is just something about the combination of chocolate, pecans, and coffee.

It really is the perfect balance of flavor and texture.  And, my family cannot get enough of these!  I highly recommend making a double batch!
