Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup raw cashews, unsalted
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Special equipment: Candy thermometer
Directions

Spray inside of measuring cup with nonstick cooking spray. In a medium saucepan, over medium-high heat, add corn syrup, sugar, and salt. Cook on stove until the temperature reaches 310 degrees F. on a candy thermometer. Once the mixture reaches 310 degrees F, take off the stove; add the baking soda, cashews and butter, working quickly and stirring constantly.

The mixture should stay an opaque color. On a nonstick tray sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, pour in the mixture and spread with wooden spoon. Cool for 1 1/2 hours.

*Cook's Note: A silicone mat would work best to avoid a sticky clean-up.

Place 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream on each dish and garnish with broken pieces of cashew crunch.
