Cooking Tips

  • Toasting the coconut and cashews before adding them to the brittle enhances their flavor.
  • Be careful when working with hot sugar syrup, as it can cause burns. Use oven mitts and handle with caution.
  • If you don't have a candy thermometer, you can test the readiness of the mixture by dropping a small amount into a bowl of cold water. It should harden and become brittle.
