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. I'm not blaming the recipe though, I'm blaming the tool. Will try this one again.
I have also been making this for years . I have burned a few batches when getting a new microwave. My 1100 w microwave requires me to cut time to 2 minutes after adding nuts and 1 minute 30 seconds after adding butter. I also make using almonds.
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 to get it all out quickly. Delicious! Will make again.
Loved it! I used butter substitute monk sugar and maple flavored syrup instead of the butter sugar and corn syrup. I also used raw cashews. The only thing I would change for next time is that I would use a smaller pan than the cookie sheet to make the brittle thicker. Yummy!
Delish! I save the butter to add when I add the vanilla to the brittle and instead use cooking spray on a foil covered pan. Like others I shorten the time due to what I think is a higher powered microwave. I shorten the first time by 30 seconds and cut a minute off each of the remaining times. The hubby loves it!
