Sweet Honey Horse Brittle

honey horse treat

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup sesame seeds
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Bring first 6 ingredients to a boil in a deep pot over high heat, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves. Boil mixture until a candy thermometer registers 300°. Remove from heat. (If you don't have a candy thermometer, drop a bit of the mixture into a glass of ice water to test the temperature. If it hardens, you're all set.)

Carefully stir in baking soda and remaining ingredients. (Mixture will fluff up.) Spread mixture onto a well-buttered baking sheet, and cool completely (about 1 hour). Break into pieces, and store cooled horse brittle in an airtight container in a cool, dry place up to 1 week.
