Pecan Chocolate Chip Brittle

I like this because of ease in making, and taste so good. Perfect for working mothers, because baked in jelly roll pan, and broke up into pieces. No dropping dough as other cookies.



  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate mini-morsels
  • 1 cup pecan pieces
  • 1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut

See my notes at bottom of recipe


Combine first 4 ingredients; set aside. Stir together butter and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl; add flour mixture, stirring until smooth. Stir in chocolate morsels, pecans, and coconut. (Dough will look crumbly.)

Press dough evenly into a lightly greased 15 x 10 inch jelly-roll pan, pressing almost to edges. Bake at 350 degrees F for 19 minutes or until lightly browned and cookie "slab" seems crisp. Cool completely in pan. Break cookie into pieces.


18 minutes is enough. I used parchment paper on pan. I find that a 17 X 11 inch pan is better.

Servings: varied

I've always thought that brittle was candy. Are these more like candy, or a crisp cookie?

The title should read, "Pecan-Chocolate Chip Cookie Brittle: It is definitely a crisp cookie.
