1 cup crushed peanut brittle
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a baking sheet, or cover with parchment paper.

4. Chill 8 hours before serving.

I make homemade peanut brittle for this cookie, but you can buy it at a grocery store. To crush it, put peanut brittle in a sealed bag and crush with something metal. I use the back of an ice cream scoop.
