Directions

  1. For brittle, butter a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. pan. In a large saucepan, cook and stir sugar and corn syrup over medium heat until a candy thermometer reads 240° (soft-ball stage). Add pecans and salt; cook and stir until mixture reaches 300° (hard-crack stage).

Editor's Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.
