Best-Ever Nut Brittle

 

Ingredients:

2 Cups Sugar

1/2 Cup Water

1 Stick Unsalted Butter

1/3 Cup Light Corn Syrup

1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda

12 Ounces Roasted Salted Peanuts, Cashews, Walnuts, Hazelnuts And/Or Pecans

Crushed Sea Salt

Directions:

In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, water, butter and corn syrup and bring to a boil. Cook over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until the caramel is light brown and registers 300 on a candy thermometer, 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and carefully stir in the baking soda. The mixture will bubble. Stir in the nuts, then immediately scrape the brittle onto a large rimmed, nonstick baking sheet. Using the back of a large spoon (oil it lightly if it sticks), spread the brittle into a thin, even layer. Sprinkle with salt. Let cool completely, about 30 minutes. Break the brittle into large pieces. Can store up to 3 months.
