Cinnamon Walnut Brittle

Seasoned with cinnamon, this spicy brittle is a great gift or family snack to munch while watching Christmas movies. Best of all, it goes together quick as a wink in the microwave.


36 servings


1 cup granulated (white) sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon butter
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Butter a baking sheet; set aside. In a 2-quart microwave-safe bowl, combine sugar and corn syrup. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH for 3 minutes; stir. Cook, uncovered, on high 2 1/2 minutes longer. Stir in walnuts, butter and cinnamon. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH for 2 minutes or until mixture turns a light amber color 300°F to 310°F/150°C to 155°C (mixture will be very hot). Quickly stir in baking soda and vanilla until light and foamy. Immediately pour onto prepared pan; spread with a metal spatula. Cool; break into pieces.
