1 1/2 cups roasted, chopped macadamia nuts
3/4 cups granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons light corn syrup

1 stick butter

place the sugar, corn syrup and water in a saucepan. bring to a rolling boil over medium heat. cover the pan and continue to boil for 5 minutes, lowering the heat a little bit.
add the butter and stir until it melts. cook until it reaches hard crack- 300 degrees on a candy thermometer. this may take 10-20 minutes. stir in the salt and nuts.
spread over half of a greased jelly roll pan, pressing with a spatula to get it as thin as possible. cool, turn out of the pan and dap the oiled side with paper towels. break the brittle into pieces to serve.
