Cashew Coconut Brittle: Really delicious brittle recipe, perfect gift idea, can also substitute any other nut.
Homemade Candy for Gift Giving
I thought it would be fun to make a few different kinds of candy this year for gift giving. I always make an amazing butternut crunch toffee recipe here …so perhaps I was a little over confident. A few weeks ago I tried to make homemade sponge toffee…it was quite the adventure. Perseverance paid off and it turned out great…eventually.
Cashew Coconut Brittle
So this week’s Cashew Coconut Brittle was approached with much more caution. I’m happy to report it came out great on the first attempt. In fact we can’t seem to stop eating it. So I can highly recommend this one.
I made it several years ago with peanuts, I remember it being good, but one of those recipes where you think to yourself the store bought version is just as good, but less effort. But this combo, of coconut and cashews is AMAZING, worth the effort, and should secure the praise and admiration of your friends and family. (Oversell? Well, let’s just say it’s really good then.)

Try Some Other Nuts
With the success of this batch I’m tempted to try some other nuts, feel free to play around or even go with the classic peanuts. It’s as simple as swapping out the 2 1/2 cups total (I did 1 1/4 cashews and 1 1/4 coconut here) with any nut of your choice.
