Cashew Brittle


2 sticks salted butter

1 cup sugar

1 Tablespoon light corn syrup

1 1/2 cup cashews


Line a baking sheet with a lightly buttered piece of waxed paper, set aside. In a medium sized saucepan, heat the butter, sugar and corn syrup on medium low heat. Stir occasionally and heat until temperature reaches 290 degrees on a candy thermometer (about 30 minutes). Take pan off heat and stir in cashews. Pour mixture onto the waxed paper lined pan, and spread the candy evenly over the pan. Let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then in the fridge for five more minutes before peeling off the waxed paper. Break into bite sized pieces and store in an airtight container.
