Spiced Pumpkin Seed Brittle | Aromatic Vanilla Cake

I like making peanut brittle across the holidays.  I bear in mind my Grandparents all the time had peanut brittle round throughout Christmas and having fun with it as a child.  I prefer to make it now round Christmas, and I plan on doing it this yr.  However this Fall I believed some Spiced Pumpkin Seed Brittle could be scrumptious!  Why not make a seasonal twist on a favourite! It’s tremendous straightforward to make too!

Some peanut brittles have a couple of extra elements than mine however I discover that I do not want all of them.  Once I make common peanut brittle it has solely 3 elements and comes out good each time.  This one 3 elements with out the spices as nicely. For this one, I first added sugar, salt and spices to a pan.  I included the pumpkin pie spices, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves and truthfully it smelled superb whereas cooking.

It’s very easy to make, you simply soften all the elements collectively in a pan over medium warmth stirring typically till the sugar melts and turns into fully liquid.  You need it to soften and begin to brown however not burn, and that’s while you add the pumpkin seeds and pour it out onto a pan.  You need to work shortly because it hardens quick.  I used turbinado sugar this time as a result of that was what I had readily available, however you need to use maple sugar or simply granulated sugar if you want.

This turned out so scrumptious and it was so easy to make!  It was candy, crunchy, flippantly spiced and satisfying!  My husband beloved it a lot your complete batch was gone in about 2 days.  I imply it’s laborious to cease consuming it when you begin snacking!  If you’re within the temper for one thing candy, undoubtedly give this Spiced Pumpkin Seed Brittle a attempt!
