Peanut Butter Chip Brittle

Yum
"This is one of my favorite Christmas candy recipes.  I request that my sister make it every year!"
 
1-(10 ounce) package of peanut butter chips
1 1/2 cups or 3 sticks  of butter
1 3/4 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons light corn syrup
3 Tablespoons water
 
On a 15x11 jelly roll pan that has been buttered, sprinkle 1 cup of the peanut butter chips.  In a saucepan, melt the butter; stir in sugar, corn syrup and water.  Bring to a boil.  Cook over medium heat until mixture reaches 300 degrees.  Remove from the heat and pour mixture over the peanut butter chips.  Sprinkle remaining chips over the top.  Allow to cool.*  Break into pieces.  Store in an airtight container.

*TIP:  After allowing the brittle to cool, you can place the pan into the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes.  This will make it easier to break the brittle into pieces.
