- 1 1/2 cups whole cashews
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup corn syrup, light
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 2 Tbs butter, cut into pieces
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp Himalayan pink salt, grind using a grinder, if needed
- 1/2 bag (5 oz) 10 oz pkg chocolate melting wafers, I used Ghirardelli®
Spray a baking sheet with a non stick spray, set aside.
Using a medium saucepan, bring corn syrup, sugar, water and salt to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.
Add cashews once mixture starts to boil and continue cooking until temperature reaches 300°.
Remove from heat and quickly stir in butter and baking soda.
Pour onto prepared baking sheet, spread with a silicone spatula or wooden spoon and then sprinkle with salt.
*When you spread out the brittle, I only spread it out on half the baking sheet. If you doubled the recipe, the whole baking sheet would be perfect.
While the brittle is boiling, pour 1/2 bag of melting chocolate wafers into a small saucepan and heat over low flame until melted, stirring often.
Once melted, drizzle over the top of the cashew brittle and let harden, then break brittle into pieces.
