Pumpkin Seed Brittle
Martha and Johnny Knoxville prepare sweet pumpkin seed brittle.
Butter an 11-by-17-inch rimmed baking sheet; set aside.
Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in sugar and honey. Bring to a boil. Cook, without stirring, until mixture is medium amber and a candy thermometer registers 280 degrees, about 6 minutes. Stir in pumpkin seeds. Cook until mixture reaches 300 degrees, about 2 minutes. Pour onto prepared baking sheet. Let cool completely. Break into pieces.
To make as seen on "The Martha Stewart Show," do not butter 11-by-17-inch baking sheet, but instead line it with a nonstick baking mat. The mixture should be cooked until it is dark amber in color. Finally, add 1/2 cup pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds) in place of the fresh pumpkin seeds.
