Roma Lanier, of Lexington, North Carolina, wrote, "I use my microwave for all my candies. Spray your bowl with cooking spray, also your spoon, and the clean-up is quicker. You can substitute pecans or canned nuts work well."
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup roasted cashews
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoons butter
1 teaspoon baking soda
In 4-cup glass measure, combine sugar and syrup. Microwave on high 4 minutes. Stir in cashews and microwave on high 3 to 4 minutes. Add vanilla and butter. Microwave on high 2 minutes. Quickly stir in baking soda and mix well. (Work fast because brittle hardens immediately.)
Turn mixture out onto a greased cookie sheet. Spread to desired thickness. Yields 3/4 pound.
