Cook Time:


  • 2 cup(s) Tropical FoodxE2x80x99s Diet DelightxC2xAE
  • 1 cup(s) granulated sugar
  • 1 cup(s) brown sugar
  • xC2xBD cup(s) corn syrup
  • xC2xBD cup(s) maple syrup
  • xC2xBD teaspoon(s) salt
  • xC2xBD cup(s) water
  • 2 tablespoon(s) butter
  • 1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
  • xC2xBD teaspoon(s) apple pie spice
  • 1 tablespoon(s) baking soda


  1. Grease baking sheet with butter and set aside for later use.
  2. Coat the interior of a heavy 3 quart saucepan with butter.
  3. Add sugars, corn syrup, maple syrup, salt and water to the coated saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
  4. Once a rapid boil is achieved, add butter. Continue boiling until a temperature of 310 degrees is indicated on a candy thermometer. (Topping the mixture with a lid helps during this process to increase the heat within the saucepan without burning the mixture.)
  5. Once at 310 degrees, add Diet Delight®, vanilla, apple pie spice, and baking soda. Quickly stir in ingredients and pour onto the buttered baking sheet while the mixture is foamy; spread as thin as possible.
  6. Allow the mixture to set and cool completely, approximately one hour.
  7. Once cool, break brittle into pieces and serve.
