Pork Rind Brittle and Corn Nut Brittle
Family Tested & Approved
coarsely crushed pork rinds (regular, or hot and spicy) or 2 generous cups corn nuts
Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and lightly spray with cooking spray.
Combine the sugar, corn syrup, and water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil.
Boil on medium-high heat without stirring until the mixture turns a golden brown, about 15 minutes.
Remove from heat and quickly stir in the butter, salt and baking soda. Stir rapidly to blend well. Stir in the pork rinds or corn nuts.
Quickly pour the mixture onto the foiled baking sheet and spread evenly with a greased spatula. Cool completely.
