Herb Infused Sweets for your Sweetie!

Valentines Day is a week away.  Recently, I came across this unique candy recipe with rosemary.  This herb-infused brittle might be one way to sweeten my sweetie for this romantic day!  Enjoy! Denise

Walnut Rosemary Brittle with Sea Salt

1 cup of sugar

1/3 cup of water

pinch of cream of tartar

1 cup of walnut halves

2/4 teaspoon of dried rosemary

Sea Salt Crystals

1. In a medium pot, combine sugar, water and cream of tartar.  Stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.  Cover the pot and let it boil approximately 5 minutes undisturbed.  Remove lid and examine color of the molten sugar.  When the mixture turns amber, quickly add walnuts and rosemary, gently stirring to incorporate.

2. Pour brittle onto a silicone baking sheet (Silpat) or buttered cookie sheet.  Spread candy thin with a buttered spatula to achieve glass-like texture.  Top with a light sprinkle of sea salt crystals while candy is still warm.

***Remember it is OK to enjoy specials treats from time to time, just do so in moderation!
