In Response to Re: Chunky Peanut Brittle:
Nikki - for my microwave recipe, I use only raw peanuts. ( at this time of year it's easy to find raw peanuts in the nutty section of your store. You will get much bigger, better raw peanuts if you buy them in the shell, found in the produce dept. of your store.. Shell them yourself) Once I found an almost exactly identical recipe calling for regular, easy to find, roasted peanuts from the snack dept. of the store. That turned out OK but not as good as the fresh nut recipe. The homemade peanut brittle is sooooo good and my recipe is made in the microwave so it's fast and easy. I can't wait to try Barbara's recipe because is sounds good and so different.

Sounds like all you would have to do is just put the chips on the bottom of the pan and the other chips on the top and use your regular recipe.
By the way the recipe I found calls for baking soda it says it makes it "fluffier" if that would be the correct term for a hard candy. Does your recipe use baking soda and have you found it makes a difference using it or not?
Gosh I wish we lived closer so you could give me a candy making lesson.
