Walnut Brittle

Everyone will want a piece of this delicious walnut brittle candy this Christmas -- so be sure to make a great big batch!

What You'll Need:

1 tablespoon margarine

2 cups chopped walnuts

2 cups sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

Cookie sheet

Paper towel

Saucepan

Mixing spoon

Hot pad

Grease a cookie sheet with a tablespoon of margarine and a paper towel (or use the margarine wrapper). Evenly spread the nuts over the cookie sheet. Ask an adult to help you melt the sugar in a saucepan over low heat. Stir the sugar until it turns into a light brown syrup.

Remove melted sugar from the stove, and add the vanilla. Stir well. With an adult's help, slowly and evenly pour the mixture over the nuts on the cookie sheet. Let the candy cool until it is hard. Break candy into small pieces before serving.
