Default Easy Cashew Brittle

Good stuff, and very easy to make.

Easy Cashew Brittle

cup unsalted butter (1 stick)
cup sugar (heaping)
1 tablespoon light Karo syrup
teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted cashews (halves or pieces OK)

1. Melt butter in 2-quart nonstick pan over low heat.

2. Add sugar, syrup, salt, and nuts.

3. Bring to boil over low heat and continue cooking, stirring constantly for about 15 minutes, until mixture turns light brown (about the color of a brown paper bag) and becomes very thick, and the nuts look roasted.

4. Immediately pour the hot mixture onto nonstick or greased cookie sheet or jellyroll pan; working very quickly, spread mixture with spoon until nuts are in a single layer. (Note: nonstick aluminum foil works well.)

5. Cool thoroughly, about an hour or more.

6. Break into small pieces and store in airtight container.

I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It's not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone. Robin Williams
