Habanero Cashew Brittle

After the debacle of my attempts to make 'Coconut Drops", I wanted to try my hand at a different candy. I also, after eating this, wanted to experiment with habanero peppers. Besides, something in me is attracted by cooking that requires surgical gloves. So, I made this recipe for Habanero Cashew Brittle last night.

I appear to have cooked them not QUITE hot enough, because the candy didn't get as brittle as I'd have liked. But, the candy is good. It's a little bit hot on the tongue, and there's some chile heat in the back of the throat, but it's not overwhelming for me and I'm no chilehead.

  1. Mmmmm, that looks tasty. One thing I haven't invested in is a candy thermometer, so I've never tried anything beyond fudge and truffles. But now you've got me thinking about it!!!
