My Life As Lizza

Where the world is my stage, soapbox or runway…depending on the day

Snack Sunday

For today’s post, I thought I would share a recipe for homemade CASHEW BRITTLE that I recently found on Thrifty Fun that I just looovvvveeee. It’s not only tasty but easy to make!!






  • 2 sticks salted butter (no substitutions)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. light corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups cashews (whole, halves or pieces – salted or unsalted)


Line a baking sheet with a lightly buttered piece of waxed paper, set aside.

In a heavy medium sized saucepan, heat the butter, sugar and corn syrup on medium low heat. Stir occasionally and heat until temperature reaches 290 degrees F on a candy thermometer (about 30 minutes).

Take pan off heat and stir in cashews. Pour mixture out onto the waxed paper lined pan, and spread the candy out across the pan. Let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then in the fridge for 5 more minutes before peeling off the waxed paper. Break into bite sized pieces and store in an airtight container.
