If you like nut brittle as well as I do, here is something a little different. This is almost foolproof if the steps are followed through in the correct order and you work fast. The chili powder adds a little kick at the end. I personally use a dried mixture of ghost pepper, Carolina reaper, and Caribbean red habiarino peppers that I grow, but I like hot, lol.......use what you like and what your comfortable with
1Read through entire recipe and have everything ready to go. Steps must go fast and in order to insure brittle will come out correct.
In a large glass measuring cup, or glass bowl, mix sugar and corn syrup. Microwave for 5-7 min or until mixture has started to turn to a lite amber color. Keep a close eye on this, some microwaves cook faster than others.
2While the sugar and syrup is microwaving, quickly mix together butter, and all the nuts and seeds. When sugar and syrup is ready, quickly add nut and seed mixture, microwave 2 more min.
3As soon as the above comes out of the microwave stir in vanilla, salt, baking soda and chili powder, combine well and spread out on a silicone mat laid on a baking sheet with a silicone spatula (makes clean up so much easier), as thin as you would like your brittle.
4When cooled break into small pieces, store in airtight container.
