Ingredients
  • 2cups roasted and salted mixed nuts
  • 3/4cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 2Tbsp unsalted butter+ more for greasing
  • 1/2tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2tsp baking soda
  • 1/2cup water
Instructions
  1. Grease a large baking sheet generously with butter and place it in a warm oven at 250º F. (You can also use Silpat liner and grease it).This will make spreading the hot mixture easier later. In a nonstick saucepan combine the water, corn syrup, and sugar over medium heat. Place the candy thermometer in the saucepan. Cook while stirring gently using a silicone spatula. Keep stirring until all the sugar is melted and the thermometer reads 240º F. This will take more than 5 mins.
  2. Stir in the butter and mixed nuts. Keep stirring until it has thickened and the thermometer reads 300º F. Watch it so it doesn’t burn.
  3. Remove the mixture from heat and quickly stir in the baking soda and vanilla. The mixture will bubble up so be careful.
  4. Remove the baking sheet from the oven. Pour the mixture onto the baking sheet carefully. Quickly spread it out evenly with a silicone spatula to about 1/4 inch thick. Let it cool for at least 1 hour.
  5. When it has cooled, break it up in pieces to your desired size. Store in airtight container and it will keep up to 1 month.
