1 cup granulated sugar

2 cups nuts of your choice
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1 teaspoon baking soda


Combine 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup corn syrup until all of the sugar is wet. Microwave 4 minutes on high.
When this is finished toss in the vanilla, nuts, and butter or margarine, and microwave for an addition 4 minutes on high.
When finished quickly stir in 1 teaspoon baking soda and pour on greased cookie sheet. Being quick is imperative.
Recipe Tips for the Cook
The name of the game is quickness for this recipe. You need to move fast with all of the steps so the brittle doesn't harden before you spread it out on the baking sheet.
If you want to make a healthier version, you can substitute the sugar for 1 cup of coconut sugar and the corn syrup for 1/2 cup of maple syrup.
