"My Cashew Crunch is so buttery, it just melts in your mouth. My family calls this candy 'addictive', and you'll see why. Use any choice of nuts, and enjoy! You will never buy store bought brittle again."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/4 cups
light corn syrup
Incredibly rich. Very easy to make. The taste is mouth-watering and addicting. I gave this 4-stars, however, because of the texture and consistency. Either I did not use the correct pan size or my proportions were off, because the consistency did not turn out how I expected. It was soft and there were not enough cashews...certain portions of the pan were just sugar/butter solidified. (I, like another reviewer, expected a brittle. Ended up taking their suggestion and refridgerated for a few minutes.)
This was amazing. My husband and son couldn't get enough of it. We bought some cashew crunch from the local Amish store and this was exactly the same. Thanks so much. I will definitely be making this again.
Very Good! I used a candy thermometer and brought it up to about 305*. It was very crunchy! I would stir more often than suggested, though. I had to stir almost constantly to keep the cashews from burning.
Tasted great. Like others have posted though, it wasn't a crunch. It was chewy. I even put it in the fridge like another poster suggested. Maybe it needs to be heated to a higher temp? I'll try that next time.
I used the cold water test along with the thermometer and it still came out soft. After 10 minutes I put it in the fridge for an hour and it hardened up a bit...but, no where near the amount for it to be called a crunch. Other than that it's absolutely delicious and everyone loved it. I just called it a Cashew Melt-in-your-mouth instead.
I used a candy thermometer and followed the recipe exactly. It turned out perfect!!
Thanks for the great recipe Nat!!
Natalie is my daughter, and I'm not saying this stuff is out of this world for that reason. We all love when she makes this, it always goes pretty fast in the house. Best ever cashew crunch :)
WONDERFUL!! I don't trust candy thermometers-so I use the cold water test. I also put it in the fridge while it cools (mostly to keep my children from putting their fingers in it) have never had a problem with it turning out chewy as other reveiwers have. This is a wonderful recipe and VERY ADDICTIVE!! Thanks Nat!
