Oregon Hazelnut Brittle
Classic brittle trades in its peanuts for hazelnuts. Make this easy candy in the microwave to cut down on time and clean-up.
Recipe Ingredients:1 cup chopped hazelnuts
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
- Butter a baking sheet and set aside.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, combine hazelnuts, sugar, corn syrup and salt. Microwave on HIGH for 7 to 8 minutes, stirring twice.
- Add butter and continue cooking for 2 to 3 minutes on HIGH. Add vanilla and baking soda, mixing thoroughly. Pour onto prepared baking sheet. Cool slightly, then stretch, if desired, for thinner brittle. Cool and break into pieces.
Makes about 2 dozen pieces.
