Why no baking soda? Doesn't this help created the bubbles in the brittle?TIA
I was looking for a recipe to make myself as the price of buying it ready-made is getting outragous! A friend tried your recipe and it is right on the money! Thanks for the recipe!
I love this except for the grease. Why is there so much grease/butter when I poor onto the pan?
I made this recipe and it came turned out like mush (several times). I can't figure out what I did wrong. Can someone please help. The first couple of times I made it, it turned out delicious. But I don't know what went wrong? Can someone help please?
I tried another recipe and had to through away the 2 batches I made because of burnt nuts. Follow this one exactly and it's perfect every time! Warning: Very Addicting:)
This is my gift @ Christmas for all family & friends. I'm already getting requests, and it's only the 5th of December, for this years batches. I place each batch in a Christmas tin & hand out as needed. Been making this for years, we love it!
I made this receipe and became one of my favorites,I have also used almonds (sliced) !
I make this every year now and people can't get enough of it! I usually end up making about 5 batches ... also makes a great gift when put in a dish and wrapped with cellophane and tied with a bow!
I made this recipe today and it is a keeper. Very good and not difficult although you do have to allow the time to do it right. I did add vanilla as similiar recipes without vanilla seemed a little flat. I used salted butter, doubled the recipe, and added 2 teaspoons of vanilla.
This is one of the best candies I've eaten. Just break into bite size pieces, serve on a pretty plate, and watch it disappear.
Delicious and it freezes well.
I also make this every year at Christmas. We like the fact that it isn't like a peanut brittle in 2 ways. Taste completely different with cashews and the texture of the candy is much easier to eat. My husband LOVES IT!! I usually have to make about 2 or 3 batches each Christmas. or no one else would get any,lol.
I discovered this recipe several years ago while looking for something different for the Christmas holidays. It has become a tradition that keeps everyone clamoring for more of this buttery goodness. Candy making takes patience. DO NOT try to rush the cooking time by turning up the heat. Anything this delicious and full of cashews is worth the time to make it right!
I made this candy for the first time three years ago and I fell in love with it, now I make it every Christmas for my Family and friends, and I'm also planning to make it to sell at a local Christmas Bazarr. It's so easy to make,and unlike other Peanut Brittles, it does not stick to your teeth, even my Family members with denturs can eat it with no problem.

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?
