I wanted to try a new technique this month using my Himalayan Salt Stones and stumbled upon this recipe while pinning! I renamed it Christmas Tree Bark for the holidays. My friends and I love edible barks at parties and to give as gifts so it was perfect, here's how to make your own.
Nonstick cooking spray
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup cashews, coarsely chopped
Refrigerate your Himalayan Salt Stones for at least an hour.
Remove your stones when they are as cold as possible then spray them with nonstick cooking spray.
Set aside while you move onto making the caramel.
Pour the sugar into a small pot and set over medium-high heat.
Let the sugar melt completely until it is a deep amber color which should take 8 to 10 minutes.
Once the sugar is caramel in color, stir in the corn syrup and baking soda.
The mixture will bubble up the sides of the pot, so use caution and keep stirring.
Immediately add the nuts and then pour the mixture onto the salt block.
Let it cool and set completely.
Once cool, the brittle can be lifted with a spatula and broken into pieces ready to serve or be wrapped as a gift!
You may even think about gifting a Himalayan Salt Stone set for them to try making their own bark once it's gone!
