Hazelnut Brittle recipe, eat well on universal credit

We have quite an abundance of foraged Hazelnuts at the moment. So this seemed like a nice little treat for very little money.


440g of sugar
250 ml of water
70 g  Hazelnuts, lightly toasted and roughly chopped
finely grated zest of 1 orange


(1) Line a baking tray with baking paper.
(2) Combine the sugar and water in a small pan over medium–high heat and stir well until the sugar has dissolved. Cook for 10–12 minutes, or until golden. Stirring regularly.
(3) Quickly add the hazelnuts and zest and stir to combine.
(4) Pour immediately onto baking tray, spreading to cover the whole surface. Allow to cool.
(5) Break with a rolling pin.
(6) Store in an airtight container.
