I always remember having my grandmother’s peanut brittle over the holidays and am thrilled that I can make brittle out of Honey!
And who wouldn’t want some delicious nut brittle as a gift?! (Click here for 15 clutter free gift ideas.)
Honey Nut Brittle
2/3 cup butter or ghee
1/2 cup honey
1 cup nuts (your choice: peanuts, almonds, pecans, walnuts, etc)
Spread parchment paper on the bottom of a cookie sheet
Cook butter and honey over medium heat to ‘hard crack’ stage, stirring constantly.
Hard crack stage: Keep a bowl of cold water near the stove, drop a few drops of the honey/butter into the cold water. When it reaches ‘hard crack’ stage, it will get hard when it hits the water. (or if you have a candy thermometer, till it’s 300 degrees F). Between 5-10 minutes.
Stir in the nuts. Pour onto parchment paper cookie sheet. Refrigerate, to cool.
Pull out the paper and candy and break into pieces.
This is awesome served with hot buttered coffee!
