This recipe is adapted from one for peanut brittle. Personally, I'm not a fan of the stuff. But it's terribly easy to turn a simple brittle into a simple toffee, and who am I to say no to that?
With the aid of that miraculous culinary invention, the microwave, it only takes 10 minutes of prep time to make this delicious treat, and it's practically fool-proof.
Let's get started...
Step 1: Materials
1 cup raw pralines
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
The nuts, even if you choose to substitute peanuts, walnuts, cashews, almonds, whatever, MUST BE RAW! They will cook in the sugar mixture, and if you use nuts that have already been roasted, they will burn, and nobody wants that.
Tools and Cookware:
Parchment Paper or Silicone Liner
Measuring Cup and Spoons
I know that microwave oven powers tend to vary by model, but use your best judgement; some pointers will be given along the way.
