2/3 cup of water
1 habanero chili
1 1/3 cup of granulated sugar
1/3 cup of corn syrup
2 tbsp of butter
1/2 tsp of baking soda
1/2 cup Dry Roasted Meal Worms
1.) Grease and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a blender combine the water and chilli pepper and blend until smooth. Run the mixture through a sieve to remove the flesh of the pepper. Set aside.
2.) In a large pot add sugar, spicy water, and corn syrup and cook over medium-high heat. Brush down the sides with water and a pastry brush and cook until the mixture reaches 290F. Once the sugar reaches the temperature and is a nice amber color turn off the heat then add the baking soda and butter. Quickly stir the mixture until it's evenly mixed and then gently add in the worms and stir.
3.) Pour the mixture onto the baking sheet and spread it with the oiled spatula. Once flat, let cool completely. Shatter the brittle to your desired size.
