SMS ~ Cashew Brittle with a Little Espresso Ice Cream


Crazy weekend so my Cashew Brittle chosen by Stephanie of Ice Cream Before Dinner for Sweet Melissa Sundays is going to be rather speedy. So not my style =). Thank you Stephanie for hosting and the choice. My first try at brittle of any type and I was surprised at how quick this candy is put together.

I have oodles left over and now kind of wished I only made half a batch . . . but the cashew brittle is definitely tasty. I bought my cashews in the bulk section so I can buy exactly what I needed.
I also made up a batch of Espresso with a Twist Ice Cream. The twist is the lemon sugar syrup added into the cream at the end. For the recipe, either go to Stephanie's blog or buy Melissa's cookbook. Check out the other Fab SMS baker's brittle by clicking here.
GUTSY GOURMET IS POSTING SHORTLY, see you soon, Shandy

Great combo with the ice cream Shandy! I sat our this week but maybe I'll eventually make this one - perhaps around the holidays when there are lots of people around to eat it.

Hey Shandy! Your brittle and ice cream look soooo yummy. Unfortunatley I didn't get to bake along this week, but plan to make this since I bought the cashews. Can't let them go to waste. I finally got Around My French Table this weekend. I plan to post my first FFWD on 10/22. Looking foward to it! I already have about 10 recipes flagged with post its. :)

Hi Shandy. Thanks for the sweet comments on my blog about my surgery. I didn't realize when I was leaving comments yesterday that I was logged into that account. I'm not so good at juggling 2 blogs! I appreciate your kind words. Everything is going great. :)
