Default Nut Brittle

Another award winnig recipe


Nut Brittle

1. 2 cups white corn syrup
2. 2 cups sugar
3. stick no salt butter
4. 2 cups nuts
(can use pecans, peanuts, etc)
5. 1-2 tablespoons vanilla
6. 1 heaping tablespoon baking soda


Mix the first 3 ingredients in 4-5 quart saucepan and heat until it reaches 290 degrees stirring the entire time. Add nuts and re-heating stirring the entire time until it reachs 300 degrees. Remove from heat stir in vanilla and then the baking soda. Candy will foam up when you stir in the soda. Pour onto 2 large no stick cookie sheets and spread as thin as possible. Cool in refrigerator

I make a variety or this and call it sweet and spicy. With peanuts I add 1/4 spoon of cayane pepper. It is amazing the watch someone eat it and after about 60 second to ask what the second flavor was?

Enjoy

Stan

No... you pour it onto the cookie sheet and spread with the back of a large spoon. The foam will go away as you spread it as think as possible. You will have to use 2 large cookie sheets.

Enjoy...

Is this dependent on the humidity? Or can you only make this on dry days?

Try at batch with Pecan pieces instead of peanut. Adds a whole dimension to brittle

Great stuff! We have made it every year since you first posted the recipe. My wife makes all sorts of candy during the holidays and this one is awesome.

Oops, posted on the wrong thread. Wife makes the toffee every year, still want to make a run at the nut brittle.

Sounds great!

A family friend is famous for his chili pequin brittle, similar to the cayenne in this recipe. He dries/grinds the peppers and adds to the mix. Then adds a drizzle of chocolate that helps with the "bite" of the pepper.
