Today we made Cinnamon Walnut Brittle!
2T butter, 1T cinnamon, 3/4t baking soda, 1 1/2C sugar, 1/4C light corn syrup, 1/4C water, 2C walnuts, 1/2t vanilla
In bowl, stir together cinnamon and baking soda. Cook sugar, corn syrup and water over high heat to a rolling boil.
Reduce heat to medium-high and cook, stirring occasionally until a candy thermometer reads 260F (hard ball stage), 10-15 minutes.
Add walnuts, vanilla and butter.
Continue cooking, stirring frequently until 300F (hard crack stage), 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and quickly add cinnamon mixture, blending well. Turn onto a buttered baking sheet. Spread evenly.
Cool and set. Break into pieces.
