Put a tasty new twist on store-bought granola by using it as the basis for brittle.

Makes: 24 servings

Prep: 25 mins

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups granola
  1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and grease the paper. In a small, heavy saucepan, combine the sugar and honey over medium-high heat. Stir the mixture until just melted; bring to a boil. Insert a candy thermometer and cook until the mixture is caramel colored and the temperature registers 300 degrees .
  2. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the butter until melted. Stir in the granola and pour the mixture on the prepared baking sheet, spreading into a 1/4-inch-thick rectangle. Let cool for 20 minutes.
  3. Cut the brittle into 1/2-by-2-inch pieces. Let cool completely. Wrap each piece in a 3-by-4-inch piece of cellophane.
