How To Make Cashew Brittle
Serving nostalgic energy with its classic crunch, this cashew brittle takes you back to the old days using crunchy treats made with corn syrup and cashews.
Lay a piece of parchment paper over a large cookie sheet. Set aside.
Combine sugar and corn syrup in an 8 cups glass bowl. Microwave on power level 7 for 4 minutes.
Remove and stir in cashews quickly using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon. Return to microwave and heat for 3½ minutes on the same power level.
Remove and stir in butter and vanilla extract. Return to microwave for an additional 1½ minutes.
Remove and stir in baking soda, mixing until light and foamy.
Pour over parchment paper and spread to desired thickness, working quickly.
Allow cashew brittle to set and harden at room temperature for about 2 hours.
Break into desired sized pieces and store in an airtight container for up to one week. Enjoy!
