Ingredients

How to make it

  • Combine corn syrup, water and sugar in pot on top of stove on low heat.
  • Stir till sugar has completely dissolved.
  • Once sugar has dissolved, cook without stirring to hard ball stage - 265 degrees.
  • Add salt and butter and continue to brittle stage - 300 degrees (if you are using the iced water method to check for candy stage, brittle stage is when you pour a little of the mixture into the water, it creates threads that easily break when you pull it out of the water)
  • While this mixture is cooking on stove, toast up shredded coconut in oven on cookie sheet. Take out and let cool.
  • Remove brittle mixture from heat, carefully add coconut and vanilla extract and stir till combined.
  • Next, grease up cookie sheet with butter, an pour brittle mixture into cookie sheet.
  • When cool enough to handle brittle, take by the edges and stretch into a thin sheet.
  • When brittle is completely cooled, break it up into irregular pieces.
  • You can also add toasted or even roasted chopped mixed nuts or just one type of nut like cashews for an amazing extra flavor!
  • Makes 1 pound.
