Prepare a pan lined with parchment paper. Set aside.

In a shallow saucepan, cook and boil your honey and water until the mixture reaches soft ball stage (about 234 degrees in a candy thermometer). A soft ball stage is when your sauce becomes so thick and small bubbles are all around your saucepan. The sauce starts to thicken and creates small bubbles.

Toss in your cashew nuts, stirring continuesly while boiling mixture for aproximately 10 – 12 minutes (or when the mixture becomes golden in hue). Remove your saucepan from heat.

Quickly add vanilla, butter and baking soda. Stir well. Moving quickly before your mixture starts to harden.

Pour brittle mixture on a tray lined with parchment paper. (You may use baking sheet and grease it with butter).

Let it cool, and start smashing with a mallet to break into pieces.

Store it in sterilized dry jars.

Serve and enjoy a no sugar brittle!?
