This quick and easy pumpkin seed brittle is addictive and makes a great food gift, too.
- 2 ½ cups white sugar
- ½ cup water
- 1 pinch salt
- 2 cups unsalted raw pumpkin seeds
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
- Combine sugar, water, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until sugar has dissolved and turned a golden brown color. Immediately add pumpkin seeds and mix well to coat with the caramelized sugar.
- Spread the very hot pumpkin seed mix thinly onto the prepared baking sheet. Let cool to room temperature. Break or cut into bite-sized pieces. Store in an airtight container in a cool place or in the refrigerator.
