Mixed-Nut Brittle

Yield: 1/2 pound
Start to Finish 15 mins
Mixed-Nut Brittle
Ingredients
  • 1/2  cup  sugar
  • 1/2  cup  light-color corn syrup
  • 1/2  cup  salted mixed nuts or peanuts
  • 1  tablespoon  butter
  • 1/2  teaspoon  vanilla
  • 1/2  teaspoon  baking soda
Directions

1. Grease a small baking sheet; set aside. In a microwave-safe 4-cup glass measure, combine sugar and corn syrup. Microwave mixture, uncovered, in a 900- to 1200-watt microwave oven on 100% power (high) for 5 minutes, stirring twice.

2. Stir in nuts and butter. Microwave mixture, uncovered, on 100% power (high) for 1 to 2 minutes more or just until mixture turns golden (mixture continues to cook and becomes more golden when removed from the microwave).

3. Stir in vanilla and baking soda. Immediately pour mixture onto prepared baking sheet. Use two forks to lift and pull candy into a thin sheet as it cools (this helps make the brittle crisp).

4. Cool brittle completely. Break into irregular pieces. Makes about 1/2 pound.
