Anyway, the thought of turning a dessert bar like a brownie into brittle sparked all kinds of ideas in my mind, such as maybe lemon bar brittle, and I may try to create my family's own brittle version for Christmas this year.

The brittle contains plenty of chocolate chips and is really wafer-thin. The composition is so crispy that it actually melts in your mouth and the flavor is intense. But the brittle does not taste not burned in case you were wondering how brittle is generated from brownies and whether burning of brownies is involved. The flavor is similar to just eating the outer edges of a brownie and leaving out the soft interior.

So if you are looking for a new treat, consider buying some brownie brittle from Sheila G. It is available on the Goodies Co. website at http://goodies.co or at Harris Teeter stores as well select in CVS stores as well as at Bed Bath & Beyond.
The nutritional information on Brownie Brittle is not bad either, as you can see from the table below:
