The BEST Amish Cashew Crunch recipe: 1 cup butter or margarine 1 cup sugar 1 tablespoon light corn syrup 2 cups cashews Cook butter, sugar and corn syrup until brown and smelling like brittle (290 F on a candy thermometer) then stir in cashews and quickly dump on a cookie suggest lined with a greased piece if parchment paper. Spread into a thin layer. Let cool and enjoy!
My Cashew Crunch is so buttery, it just melts in your mouth. My family calls this candy 'addictive', and you'll see why. Use any choice of nuts, and enjoy! You will never buy store bought brittle again.
