This is a great recipe to make to keep for when you have guests and just for a yummy sweet snack. Make some cookies too.

My daughter loves these and loves my gluten free pesto.

1 c sugar
½ c corn syrup    
½ c water
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla extract

1. Cook 1 c sugar, ½ c corn syrup, and ½ c water in a pan over medium heat. Stir until it boils, then wait until it hits 290 degrees.

2. Stir in 1 tbsp butter, 1 tsp baking soda, ½ tsp salt, and 2 tsp vanilla extract (and chopped nuts, if you prefer), then pour onto a Silpat or greased baking sheet.

3. Cool, then break into pieces.
