  • unsalted roasted peanuts 200g
  • plain pretzels 50g
  • caster sugar 150g
  • golden syrup 150g
  • butter 100g
  • sea salt flakes


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Scatter the nuts onto a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 5-10 minutes, tossing regularly until brown, then spread evenly on a piece of baking paper on a large baking tray along with the pretzels.

  • Step 2

    Gently heat the sugar, golden syrup, butter and 4 tbsp of water in a large pan until melted. Turn up the heat until the mixture is bubbling, then cook until it has turned a rich golden brown – this will take about 10-15 minutes, depending on the heat

  • Step 3

    Keep a close eye on the pan and give it a stir every now and then. Once the mixture is golden brown, remove from the heat and pour straight over the nuts and pretzels.

  • Step 4

    Sprinkle generously with sea salt flakes. Leave to set before breaking into shards and packing up. The brittle will keep for 1 week.
