This brittle combines maple-flavored syrup and cashews for a different twist on an old favorite.

Wow. Just wasted 2 cups of cashews and a cup and a half of pure maple syrup. I think that's where I went wrong. Maybe the maple syrup instead of maple "flavored" syrup. After boiling and adding nuts and baking soda, it turned into something that resembles lumpy brown sugar. Nuts wouldn't stick. Just trying to prevent somebody from making same mistake. I'll try again when I get some maple breakfast syrup.
I made this for Christmas and thought it was so good! I ate most of it myself because my husband has sensitive teeth and thought it was too hard for him. Next time I make it I will probably cook it to a lower temperature so it is not quite so hard. Other than that, for me, it was perfect and I had no problems with spreading it. Yum....
This recipe tasted great but had a little trouble when it came to spreading it out on a sheet. It went hard way to fast to spread out and I have made other brittles before and was able to spread it out in time. I give it three stars out of five due to the fact it did not spread to my liking.

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?
