Honey Nut Candy
A honey & nut "brittle" candy - contributed by Becky Hoover
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups honey
  • 4-6 cups finely chopped walnuts, pecans, or almonds
Cook sugar and honey over medium-low heat, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon, until sugar dissolves, approx. 10 minutes. Gradually add nuts and continue cooking, stirring frequently, careful not to burn the syrup, until the mixture is very thick and reaches the soft crack stages - 280 degrees on a candy thermometer.  Spoon mixture onto a wet board or oiled baking sheet and spread to 1/4-1/2 in. thickness.  Let cool until firm but not hard, about 10 minutes.  Cut into pieces with a knife dipped into hot water.
