Tired of peanut brittle? Try this. Sharn Jean made some a couple days ago and it is awesome!



Cashew Brittle



Ingredients



½ cup white Karo Syrup

1 Cup Sugar

1 and ½ cups of Cashews (preferably salted, if not you may want to add a dash of salt)

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon butter

1 teaspoon baking soda



Combine syrup, sugar, salt and butter; pour into electric skillet and cook (at about 350 degrees) until it just begins to turn color. Add Cashews and continue until the mixture turns a light caramel color.

Turn off the heat; stir in the baking soda and vanilla until the mixture is light and foamy. Pour onto a greased or buttered cookie sheet and spread with spatula. Chill or let cool and then break into pieces. Store in an air tight container.

I love Peanut Brittle, and Pecan Brittle, and can be a downright pig on cashews! Thanks for posting this, 2Lane!

My pleasure. This stuff is really good; Sharn Jean says one thing is that it has vanilla added, which I don't think the peanut brittle does. What with all of this Cashew Brittle and Cajun crackers, I'm certainly getting caught up on my carbs!

Ok, I made my first Brittle, ever.

The pieces came out a little big but what the heck.:lol:
:lol::lol::lol:

You're supposed to spread it out thin and break it up. So, what's the verdict? Was it good? I hope so, my daughter used to make it every year, starting when she was about 10 years old. Love the pictures, BTW!
