Chili Cereal Brittle

Chili Cereal Brittle is a sweet treat made with the zest of chili powder.  It’s great for a snack when you are tired of normal sweets.   Puffed cereal can be substituted with toasted O cereals.

Chili Cereal Brittle

3 cups sugar

2 tbsp maple syrup

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tbsp chili powder

2 cups puffed rice cereal

2 tbsp butter


When working with hot sugar be careful.  You don’t want to burn yourself.

Combine sugar, maple syrup, chili powder and salt in a large heavy skillet.  Heat over high heat until the sugar is lumpy.

Lower heat to medium heat and continue cooking, stirring until sugar is completely melted (it will be a rich brown colour).

Stir in cereal and butter.  Pour immediately into a greased jelly roll pan.  When cool break in small pieces and serve.

For another sweet treat try Caramel Corn.
