On October 9th, 2012, Tropical Foods had its Flavors of the Fall Recipe Contest with the culinary students at the Charlotte Campus of Johnson & Wales University. This recipe, Tropical Food’s Trail Mix Brittle, was created by Ashley Cummings.


  • 2 cups Tropical Food’s Diet Delight®
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup corn syrup
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. apple pie spice
  • 1 tbsp. baking soda


  • Grease baking sheet with butter and set aside for later use.
  • Coat the interior of a heavy 3 quart saucepan with butter.
  • Add sugars, corn syrup, maple syrup, salt and water to the coated saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Once a rapid boil is achieved, add butter. Continue boiling until a temperature of 310 degrees is indicated on a candy thermometer. (Topping the mixture with a lid helps during this process to increase the heat within the saucepan without burning the mixture.)
  • Once at 310 degrees, add Diet Delight®, vanilla, apple pie spice, and baking soda. Quickly stir in ingredients and pour onto the buttered baking sheet while the mixture is foamy; spread as thin as possible.
  • Allow the mixture to set and cool completely, approximately one hour.
  • Once cool, break brittle into pieces and serve.
