Sweet Melissa Sundays: Brittle
It's such a bummer when a recipe is going along nicely and in the last few minutes it goes bad. That's what happened with this brittle. I was getting a nice slow caramel color and approaching 340 degree mark on my candy thermometer. Only 8 more degrees to go...except in those few short minutes the color went from honey caramel color to burnt sienna. Emphasis on the burnt. I was hopeful it might not really be burned. Yep, it sure was.
I have had trouble with candy in the past...perhaps my candy thermometer isn't quite right...yeah, I'm sure that's it.
I attempted to make cashew brittle this time around since I was unable to make it with Sweet Melissa Sundays 2 weeks ago. Practice would have been helpful today!
Thank you JoVonn for hosting this week! For the recipe head over to JoVonn's blog, the The Givens Chronicles. To see how other bakers did with their brittle click here.
