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.
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.
