After seeing a couple of the reviews below, plus the fact that i'd broken my candy thermometer, I was leary of trying this one, but couldnt resist. So i followed a rule from another recipe and cooked it until it turned "walnut colored", which is to say, it just started turning brown. You'll know it when you see it. It turned out perfect. What a great, and different, brittle for brittle lovers.

The taste was wonderful, but it stayed chewy--never hardened. Clung to your teeth unmercifully when trying to eat it. Won't make again.
I made this as a Christmas gift for my Dad, and it was absolutely delicious! Thanks for sharing!
I don't even want to give this recipe any stars, but that wasn't an option. I had a horrible time with this recipe - it never hardens, just stays soft and chewy. Tried it twice thinking it was a problem with the temperature, but got the same result both times. Next time I'm just going to mix coconut and cashews with a regular brittle recipe. Stay away!
My family loves peanut brittle, and this one is made with cashews. It's delicious and one we will be making many more times.
