Cayenne Toffee-Style Peanut Brittle
Thanks to Nancy Groutage who made this for us, sometime after I asked, "How do you make peanut brittle?"
Dan from Platter Talk
In heavy sauce pan, melt butter over medium heat.
Add sugars, syrup, and cayenne pepper and mix together until sugars are dissolved.
Gently fold in nuts.
Increase heat and bring mixture to boil and turns a golden brown in color.
Place mixture on cookie sheet and allow to cool and harden.
Break into pieces, using your hands.
For firmer toffee, use less butter
For softer toffee, use a little more butter
For more zip, add an additional 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper.
