Rice Brittle Crunch

Serving Size: 8
Total Time:


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp light corn syrup
  • 3 Tbsp water
  • 1.75 cup toasted rice cereal, preferably Rice Krispies
  • 0.75 cup banana chips, coarsely chopped
  • 0.5 cup salted roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped
  • 0.25 tsp baking soda


1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment and spray the paper with nonstick cooking spray. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup and water and bring to a boil over moderately high heat. Cook undisturbed until a deep-amber caramel forms, about 7 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in the rice cereal, banana chips, peanuts and baking soda.

2. Quickly spread the brittle on the baking sheet, separating it into pieces as much as possible with a spatula. Let cool until hardened, about 45 minutes. Coarsely chop the brittle or break it into clusters and serve.
