My microwave wattage must be higher than the recipe's, and I'm wondering if the cashews should have been raw? What I could salvage of my first batch was very tasty, but a lot of it was burned. ...

Didn't change a thing and it was awesome! Have to be quick getting it out of the bowl before it starts to harden. I had someone hold the bowl while I poured/scooped it out the 2nd time I made it...

Have been making these for years. Great quick and easy gift!

My hubby loves all things brittle so I surprised him with this recipe today. Followed exact directions he said it was awesome.
