Honey Nut Brittle

By tdberg

This is my version of a classic nut brittle. You can use any kind of nut- not just peanuts! So be creative and and think outside the shell.

Honey Nut Brittle
Ingredients
1 and 1/2 cups of your favorite nuts (peanuts, cashews, pecans, macadamia, brazilian)
1 cup of cane sugar
1 cup of honey
2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
1/4 cup of water
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda

Melt butter in a medium size pot. Add honey, sugar and water. Stir over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil and clip your candy thermometer to the side of the pan. Continue stirring until the mixture reaches 280 degrees Fahrenheit. Add the nuts and continue heating until it reaches around 300 degrees Fahrenheit.

Remove from heat and add the baking soda. The mixture will froth and foam.

Grease a cookie sheet with butter. Pour brittle onto the cookie sheet and allow it to cool. Once it has cooled you can break it into pieces.
