2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup dark brown sugar -- packed
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup chile-- habanero, dried ground chipotles
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup soft butter or margarine
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups peanuts, cashews or coarsely chopped pecans, walnuts or brazil nuts

Preparation / Directions:

Boil together the sugars, corn syrup, water, chile and salt until the mixture reaches 300 degrees F. on a candy thermometer (hard crack). Stir the mixture only until the sugar is dissolved so it doesn't scorch. Add the butter and soda, stirring until the mixture foams up. Add nuts and quickly stir them in. Pour the mixture onto a greased heatproof flat pan. Spread the mixture until it is very thin. Loosen from the sheet before it cools and hardens. Break into crude piece
