Brittle candy studded with pistachios is a twist on the traditional peanut brittle candy recipe.
Butter 2 (15x10x1-inch) baking pans; set aside.
Combine sugar, corn syrup and water in 3-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 10-15 minutes or until sugar is dissolved and mixture comes to a full boil.
Add butter. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, 35-40 minutes or until candy thermometer reaches 280°F or small amount of mixture dropped into ice water forms a pliable strand.
Stir in pistachios. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, 15-20 minutes or until candy thermometer reaches 305°F or small amount of mixture dropped into ice water forms a brittle strand.
Remove from heat; stir in baking soda. Pour mixture evenly into prepared pans; spread about 1/4 inch thick. Cool completely; break into pieces.

Easy directions. Really great, buttery taste. Made two full sheet pans. I made this for Valentines Day since everyone already gets so much chocolate. I now have to hide it so that there is some left to hand out! Everyone has been picking at the edges!This is the second candy recipe that I have downloaded from Land O Lakes. Aunt Betty's Caramels are DIVINE! The best caramels I have ever had - bar none! I am off to make them next.
super easy, and fantastic results. My entire family loved it, from the grandparents, to the adults, to the kids (who usually complain about having nuts in their desserts). will be making this again!
My daughter made this brittle to serve at her wedding and it was amazing!
This recipe is easy and the best brittle I have ever made.

Once the temperature drops a few degrees, I’m in full-on fall foods mode. Pumpkin bars, apple crisp, cranberry bread…you name it, I’m making it. However, most of it revolves around sweets. Why doesn’t dinner get a fair chance?
