  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 Tbs butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 Tbs vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • non-stick cooking spray


  • Spray a cookie sheet (18 x 13 inches) with non-stick cooking spray
  • Bring sugar, syrup, water, and butter in a pan and bring it to a boil
  • Use a candy thermometer, and stir continuously until it reaches just below hard crack stage, 285-290 degrees.
  • Remove from heat and quickly stir in baking soda, salt, and vanilla
  • Pour into well-greased cookie sheet, and before it cools and hardens, push M&M's® Crispy into the top. You basically want to wait about 10 seconds, then start, just be careful not to burn your fingers.
  • Let the brittle cool completely
  • Slip a spatula under the brittle when cool, and lift, then crack into pieces
  • Store in airtight container for up to a week
