Mickey's Chocolate Factory Spicy Peanut Brittle
Yesterday I took my first visit to Disneyland in 4 long years...
Sadly, since it was a spur of the moment trip and I had not budgeted for it- and in that four year span a single days park admission had soared up to $91.00 for a park hopper pass (the hell?!) I ended up just walking around Downtown Disney which is an admission free area with tons of shops and restaurants and is a fun place in it's own right.
One of the shops is a cute candy shop called Marceline's Confectionery. Out of all the many treats in the shop one of the things that caught my eye was spicy peanut brittle.
The brittle it's self is practically worth the price of park admission. It's buttery and sweet without being sticky. It tastes EXACTLY like a solid version of a Payday bar.
The added kick comes from the peanut. While not as spicy as say, Planter's Heat or the hot Lay's nuts, the peanuts still have a nice mild pepper kick. There is just enough heat to take the sweet edge off the candy but not so much that someone who is less of a pepper head would feel blown away by the spice.
I really should have gotten two bags because this was just great!
