Expert Tips

  • To crush the peanut brittle, seal it in a sturdy plastic bag. Pound the brittle with a hammer or the bottom of a heavy saucepan.
  • Place the frosted torte in the freezer until the frosting has hardened. Then wrap the torte well in aluminum foil or plastic wrap. To thaw unwrap the torte and place it on a serving platter. Cover it loosely with plastic wrap and store it overnight in the refrigerator.
