DIRECTIONS

  • To make chili honey, take the honey and place 4 chilies (I roasted them slightly first) and then place in a jar overnight.
  • If you want, you can puree some of the chilies with the garlic for a extra kick.
  • For the Brittle: Line 2 baking sheets with parchment or waxed paper.
  • Combine the water and sugar in a large nonstick heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat.
  • Stir to dissolve the sugar, 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Add the corn syrup, honey, and salt, and stir constantly and slowly with a wooden spoon until the mixture comes to a gentle boil, about 2 minutes.
  • Continue stirring until the mixture reaches 290°F on a candy thermometer.
  • Remove the pan from the heat.
  • Add the butter, garlic puree, and baking soda and stir until the butter is completely melted, about 1 minute.
  • Pour the mixture onto the baking sheets, being careful as it is very hot, and spread it evenly with a rubber spatula.
  • Let cool completely.
  • Break the brittle into shards.
