Just in time for holiday gift giving, here’s a candy recipe you need to try— Salted Caramel Nut Brittle. Post sponsored by Diamond Nuts.
Almost more than anything about this time of year, I look forward to the holiday treats. (Is that really any surprise?) But while I love gobbling up the cookies and candy, I enjoy giving it all away to friends and family more. Homemade treats are some of my favorite gifts to give. Everyone is sure to love them, and it’s a great excuse for me to have some fun in the kitchen without feeling guilty about eating it all afterward.
I’ve eaten a whole batch of cookies before, I really have. And it doesn’t feel so good. Sharing them with others feels so much better!
When Diamond Nuts sent me a box filled with gorgeous walnuts, pecans, and almonds the first idea that popped into my mind was brittle. I’d never made a brittle before and it seemed like a fun challenge. As it turns out, brittle is fairly easy to make and not all that different from other caramel-based candy, like toffee. You just need a candy thermometer and a little patience.
It’s worth the effort though, that I can promise you. The toasted nuts are right at home swimming in the crunchy caramel and the fleur de sel is the perfect topper. It’s a good thing most of this batch is already packaged up for gifts otherwise I’d probably have eaten it all!
