Tropical Food’s Trail Mix Brittle
  • Cooking Time: 15 minutes, 1 hour to co
  • Servings: 12
  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes
  • 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
  1. Grease baking sheet with butter and set aside for later use.
  2. Coat the interior of a heavy 3 quart saucepan with butter.
  3. Add sugars, corn syrup, maple syrup, salt and water to the coated saucepan.
  4. 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.)
  5. 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.
  6. Allow the mixture to set and cool completely, approximately one hour.
  7. Once cool, break brittle into pieces and serve.
