For the Brittle:
2 Sticks of Unsalted Butter
2/3C Light Corn Syrup
1t Baking Soda
Pinch of Cinnamon
½t Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (optional)
2C Dry Roasted Peanuts
1- 1 ½C Thick Cut Bacon, Cooked Until Crispy & Roughly Chopped
Fleur de Sel, For Sprinkling
Directions:1. To Make the Mixed-Nut Brittle Crumble: In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, water, butter, and corn syrup and bring it to a boil. Cook over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until the caramel is a light brown color and registers to 300 degrees on a candy thermometer, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and carefully stir in the baking soda, a pinch of cinnamon, and red pepper flakes. The mixture will bubble. Stir in the nuts and bacon, and then immediately scrape the brittle onto a large rimmed, non-stick baking sheet. Using the back of a spoon, spread the brittle into a thin, even layer. Sprinkle the brittle with some fleur de sel let it cool completely, about 30 minutes.
2. Break into pieces and keep cold in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
