These little babies will be off tomorrow to my old office together with some wedding invitations and someone’s missing plane ticket. Heh.
Anyway, the nut brittle is a first for me. I’ve never been great at making brittle and this time was no exception. I did everything off – too much water, too quick on adding the nuts, too fast off the stove. To top things off, I used rock sugar, caster sugar and added about two teaspoon of marmalade jam. The result is unique but somewhat strange; the recipe needs some fine-tuning.
Needless to say, I’m now left with heaps of sugared nuts (walnut, hazelnut and pecans). I suppose I could always ground them and then sprinkle them over some not-so-sweet cookies…o’well, we’ll see how it goes…
Now I’m just hoping that this will go down well with the folks tomorrow!
