DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Quickly, pour the mixture evenly into two buttered 15 x 10 x 1 inch jellyroll plans, and spread in a thin layer. Let cool completely; break into pieces.
  • Store the candy in an airtight container.
