I found this recipe several years ago, and have been using it ever since. It isn't Christmas without it. It does take a little time, but it is well worth it. The finished product is a crispy foam that is delicious. I do add 1 t of vanilla when I add the baking soda, but other than that, the recipe is perfect. I have made cashew brittle with this recipe, they were already roasted so I just waited for the syrup to be very close to the right brown and added them at the end. If you work fast, you can spread the brittle once it is on the cookie sheet, for a minute or two it will continue to foam. Just remember that it is napalm at that point, and treat it as such. Even after it is too cool to spread, you can get a burn that feels like it will never quit. This recipe is the one sweet recipe that I get requests for at Christmas. Off to the kitchen now to make some for New Years!
