Ingredients

  • 1

    cup sugar

  • ½

    cup light corn syrup

  • 1 to 1½

    cups salted cashew halves

  • 1

    teaspoon butter

  • 1

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the sugar and corn syrup. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 3 minutes; stir. Heat 2 minutes longer. Stir in cashews and butter. Microwave on high for 20-50 seconds or until mixture turns a light amber (mixture will be very hot). Quickly stir in baking soda and vanilla until light and foamy. Immediately pour onto a greased baking sheet and spread with a metal spatula. Chill for 20 minutes or until set; break into small pieces. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 3/4 pound.
