Jalapeno Nut Brittle

Jalapeno Nut Brittle created by Rita1652

Sweet brittle using nuts of choice. If extra heat is desired go for a habanero and add some fresh jalapeno at the end along with the extracts. This is not spicy it just gives You That OH! What is that flavor? If wanting heat go for additional jalapenos added at the end of cooking along with the baking soda.

    I really love this recipe. I doubled the amounts for the toffee because I used 2 cups of nuts, and I think if I hadn't, I wouldn't have had enough to properly coat the nuts. Otherwise, top notch recipe! I love the kick the jalapeno brings to the brittle.
