How to make it

  1. Line baking sheet with silicone baking mat.
  2. Stir together sugar, agave nectar, and 1/2 cup water in large saucepan. Cover, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Uncover, and cook at a rapid boil 10 minutes, or until mixture reaches 300°F according to candy thermometer.
  3. Remove pan from heat, and stir in baking soda. (
  4. Mixture will foam up and change color.) Stir until mixture is uniform light golden color, then stir in nuts. Return to heat, and gently stir 1 to 2 minutes, or until caramel is liquid once more.
  5. Pour nut mixture onto prepared baking sheet, and spread to 1/4-inch thickness with spatula. Cool completely, then break into pieces. Store in airtight container.
