Paraffin in Peanut Brittle?

by Lane

What is the reason of putting paraffin in peanut brittle?

Hi Lane,

I'm not sure why a person would put paraffin in peanut brittle. I can understand putting a small amount of melted chocolate to cover the peanut brittle. After all, everything tastes better covered in chocolate! :)

The paraffin in melted chocolate is to help keep the chocolate smooth and set nicely when it hardens.
