The traditional peanut brittle gets an update by using walnuts that are toasted, plus an addition of smokehouse rub found at Winco® (1745 is the bin number). Instead of using traditional corn syrup, I swapped to Lyle's® golden syrup; I believe it gave a deeper, richer taste. I absolutely recommend using a nonstick saucepan and a silicone spatula, because this mixture is rather sticky

  • Line a rimmed half-sheet pan with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

  • Combine sugar, water, and golden syrup in a nonstick saucepan over medium heat. Do not stir. Clip a candy thermometer to the side of the pan, and wait for the mixture to reach 275 degrees F (135 degrees C), about 5 minutes.

  • Once sugar mixture reaches 275 degrees F (135 degrees C), add toasted walnuts. Stir using a silicone spatula until mixture reaches 300 degrees F (150 degrees C), about 5 minutes more. Stir in butter, baking soda, smokehouse rub, and walnut extract.

  • Remove saucepan from heat and carefully pour mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. Allow to cool before breaking into smaller pieces, about 30 minutes.
