This was a blissful chocolate moment that was one of the highlights of my sister’s visit to our home, in Georgia. Gail, creator of Revival Confections, had brought me and Bruce a package of her new Spicy Peanut Brittle. After photographing the package, it was time to break it open and sample this much-anticipated addition to her line of gourmet confections. Now, honestly, I was skeptical, as a person who has a take it or leave it attitude towards peanut brittle. It just doesn’t (usually) rock my boat the way chocolate does. BUT, my opinion has changed! The spice was just right and I was bowled over by this fabulous brittle! Being the chocoholic that I am, however, I couldn’t just leave it be, wondering what it would taste like dipped in chocolate. So, here it was, late in the evening, and I make a half-joking suggestion that we heat up some chocolate and give it a dip. Gail replied, “OK!”  So, I scavenged through my stash of chocolate and uncovered a 62% cacao bar of Scharffenberger to do the job. YUM! It tasted fabulous with the Spicy Peanut Brittle. But, being the chocolate/cayenne, chocolate/cinnamon, and chocolate/cayenne/cinnamon combinations lover that I am, I had to take it a step further. Hot Tip: Costco has THE BEST cinnamon I have ever tasted- and it is quite inexpensive! After stirring in a healthy shake (or two… or three…), we gave the brittle another dip. PERFECT! After that, I think I have earned my place as Revival Confection’s R&D advisor, don’t you think?
