    breezermom's Note:

    Yummy brittle....just don't try to make it on a day with high humidity. It will turn out too sticky. Also, if your cashews aren't roasted, be sure to throw them in the oven for a adds a great deal to the taste! The 20 minute prep time is the time to roast the cashews if necessary.

    1. 1
      Combine the sugar, corn syrup, and water in a large heavy saucepan; cook over medium-low heat until the sugar dissolves, stirring occasionally. Add the butter, stirring gently until the butter melts.
    2. 2
      Cover and cook over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes to wash down the sugar crystals from the sides of the pan. Uncover and cook to soft crack stage (280 degrees), stirring occasionally. Add cashews; cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture reaches hard crack stage (300 degrees). Remove from heat and stir in the baking soda.
