Satisfy your sweet tooth with this nut-packed candy from Fairway Market's executive vice president Dan Glickberg and chef Mitchel London. Get the recipe. Promotional consideration furnished by Fairway Market.
3 cups of sugar
3 cups of nuts (cashews, peanuts, almonds, etc)
Sea salt to taste
In a heavy pot, caramelize the sugar over a medium low heat for 20 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes. When the sugar begins to caramelize lower the heat a little.
When the sugar is caramelized and melted, add the nuts to the pot. Pour the mixture on a silicon pad or buttered sheet pan (you have to work very quickly because the sugar hardens fast). Spread it in an even layer with a spatula. Let brittle sit for 30 minutes to cool and harden. Add sea salt, crack into pieces and eat.
