Twyla's Famous Cashew Brittle

Twyla's Famous Cashew Brittle

Step into the world of sweet indulgence as we unravel the secrets behind Twyla’s famous Cashew Brittle, elevated to new heights with the infusion of Farmer’s Friend Extracts RSO. This delectable treat combines the timeless crunch of peanut brittle with the rich essence of cannabis, creating a unique and irresistible experience for both confectionery enthusiasts and cannabis aficionados alike.


  • 1 Gram RSO (or amount of choice)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 1 ½ tablespoons light corn syrup OR 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 cups lightly salted and roasted cashews
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt flakes


  • Measuring Cup
  • Butter Knife & Cutting Board
  • Small Pot
  • Candy Thermometer
  • Large Spoon
  • Silpat or Foil
  • Baking Sheet


Begin by measuring out your ingredients and cutting your butter into small cubes.


Place sugar inso a small pot with tall sides and shake the pot to make sure the sugar has a flat and even surface. Attach a candy thermometer to the side of the pot, making sure the tip does not touch the bottom of the pot.


Top sugar with cut butter and corn syrup and place over medium heat. Cook mixture until sugar melts completely and mixture begins to caramelize.


Gently stir with a wooden spoon to incorporate the melting butter into the melted sugar.

Continue to cook the sugar and butter until an amber color develops and the candy thermometer reaches 310˚F exactly.

Quickly remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the RSO (mix very well to ensure consistent dosing).


Mix in the Cashews.


Pour mixture onto a silpat (or foil) lined baking sheet with raised edges, moving the baking sheet around on a slit tilt to create an even 1/4 inch layer.

Allow the brittle to set for about 5 minutes, then sprinkle the surface with the sea salt. It is at this point when you should cut or score the brittle into your desired serving sizes.

Set aside until the brittle has completely hardened (about 20 to 30 minutes).

Dosing Guide

Only use as much of the syringe as needed for your desired dosage.

If you use the entire syringe, then divide the THC mg amount on your package by 10mg to get your average serving size.

This will tell you how many pieces you cut it into to achieve a 10mg serving.

Because we used the entire syringe of 600mg, we would have to cut it into 60 servings to create 10mg servings. Our dosage needs are higher so we aimed for 30 pieces of 20mg each.

If you were to infuse your brittle with only half of the syringe you could make a lower dosage serving size. In this way you can even make microdoses by using only an 1/8th or 1/4 of the syringe or less.

Always consult your guests about their dosage requirements and inform them as to how many mg they are consuming. If your guest is more sensitive you can choose to add a smaller amount of RSO or double the other ingredients to make a larger and less potent batch.

Per OLCC research: The average psycho-active threshold is 5mg, some people need less, some people need more.

Always start low and add slowly, remembering to wait at least 1.5 hours after eating an edible before consuming more as it takes time for your body to digest the cannabis and feel the effects.
