Believe me when I tell you that this pumpkin seed brittle is out of the world. I made it originally as a garnish for Pumpkin Bundt Cake, but I had to make a second batch the very next day. That’s how good it was!

I could eat this stuff every single day. In fact, that second batch I mentioned? I ate all of it. By myself.

Why not also try…
Not a big fan of pumpkin seeds? You can try substituting other seeds or nuts for them. Peanut brittle is traditional, but cashew and pecan brittle are two of my favorites.
Want to spice things up a bit? Try adding a pinch of cayenne pepper to the recipe.
