Maple Walnut Brittle


  • ¾ cup light corn syrup
  • ¾ cup dark maple syrup
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ cups walnuts, chopped
  • Vegetable oil for coating spatula and baking sheet


    1. Combine corn and maple syrups and sugar in a 2-quart souffle dish. Cook, uncovered, at 100 percent power in a high-power microwave oven for 5 minutes.
    2. Remove from oven and stir well. Stir in walnuts. Cover tightly with microwave plastic wrap. Cook for 11 minutes. While mixture cooks, coat a large baking sheet and a metal spatula with vegetable oil. Prick plastic to release steam.
