Pumpkin Seed Brittle

  • ACTIVE: 15 MIN

  • SERVINGS: Makes about 7 ounces
  • MAKE-AHEAD
  1. 1/3 cup sugar
  2. 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  3. 2 tablespoons water
  4. 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons toasted unsalted pumpkin seeds
  5. 1/8 teaspoon baking soda dissolved in 1 teaspoon water

Let cool until hardened. Break into shards and serve.
