Sweet, salty and nutty flavors are blissful together already, but try adding chocolate and you’ll really be flying! This recipe for Sweet & Salty Chocolate Pecan Brittle with three kinds of chocolate is from my DownTime cookbook. Great for any sort of gathering: holidays, game nights, movie nights, you name it, you cook it! Attention to our co-ed readers: You can even make this in your dorm room microwave! Serves 15-20 chocoholics.

7 oz. bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped, 7 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped, and 6 oz. white chocolate, finely chopped. 1 c. roasted pecans, coarsely chopped and 1 Tbsp. coarse sea salt.

1. Line sheet pan with parchment. 2. Place all chocolate in large glass micro-safe bowl. Heat on high power 20-30 seconds. Stir with heat-proof spatula until melted. Continue at 30-second intervals, stirring between each one until smooth. Cool slightly. Pour melted chocolate onto parchment and spread with your spatula to form a large rectangle. 3. Sprinkle the top evenly by holding your hand above your shoulder to lightly shower the surface. Distribute the pecans over the surface. Brittle will form in 1 1/2-2 hours. Break into shards or cut into squares.

    You’re probably nearly right but what about the last one you posted not long ago that was a little different?
