  • MAKE-AHEAD
  1. 1/2 cup sugar
  2. 2 tablespoons water
  3. 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  4. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  5. 1 1/4 cups skinned roasted hazelnuts, coarsely chopped (about 6 ounces)
  6. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  7. 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  8. 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  1. Line a baking sheet with buttered parchment paper. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, water, corn syrup and butter and bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar is melted. Cook over moderate heat without stirring until the syrup reaches 270° on a candy thermometer, about 10 minutes. Stir in the chopped hazelnuts, salt, baking soda and vanilla and cook until the mixture is golden, about 3 minutes longer. Immediately pour the hot hazelnut brittle onto the prepared parchment and spread it in a thin layer using a spatula. Let the hazelnut brittle cool completely, then break into pieces.
Make Ahead The brittle can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
