  • 300 g caster sugar
  • 200 g salted nuts roughly chopped


  • Line a large baking tray with baking parchment. Put the sugar in a pan and place over a low heat. Shake the pan a little until the sugar starts to clump together. It will slowly start to melt and turn a caramel colour – keep it on the heat until it turns a dark caramel colour.
  • Once it reaches this colour, stir in the nuts and glacé cherries, then pour onto the lined baking trays. Set aside to cool and set.
  • Break the brittle into pieces.


For a festive or party variation, try scattering a few glace cherries over the baking tray before pouring the caramel and nut mixture.
