“My Cashew Crunch is so buttery, it just melts in your mouth. My family calls this candy 'addictive', and you'll see why. Use any choice of nuts, and enjoy! You will never buy store bought brittle again.” - by Natalie
Original recipe yields 2 pounds
- Generously butter or grease a large baking sheet, and set aside.
- In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the butter, sugar, salt and corn syrup. Cook, stirring until butter is melted. Stir in the cashews, and increase the heat to high. Heat to 300 to 310 degrees F (149 to 154 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard, brittle threads. Stir occasionally with a long handled wooden spoon so the cashews do not burn.
- Pour onto a greased baking sheet, and allow to cool for about 10 minutes. Break into pieces, and store in an airtight container lined with waxed paper.

"Incredibly rich. Very easy to make. The taste is mouth-watering and addicting. I gave this 4-stars, however, because of the texture and consistency. Either I did not use the correct pan size or my ..." See moreproportions were off, because the consistency did not turn out how I expected. It was soft and there were not enough cashews...certain portions of the pan were just sugar/butter solidified. (I, like another reviewer, expected a brittle. Ended up taking their suggestion and refridgerated for a few minutes.)"
