The Krokant - Crocant
Krokant for Frankfurter Kranz

Krokant for Frankfurter Kranz


A favorite for decorating German cakes or cookies. You can make a supply of "Krokant" and store it, or make it just for this recipe. This picture is showing you how to chop the brittle. You could use store-bought peanut brittle, too.

Crocant is a nut brittle, chopped fine. The recipe used here is:

  • 2 T. butter (30 g.)
  • 2/3 c. sugar (120 g.)
  • 3/4 c. nuts, chopped (hazelnut, almond, peanut, or other)

And makes about 1 1/2 cups of crocant. See this recipe for full directions.

Go to Recipe for small Frankfurter Kranz as seen in the pictures.
