Look at those shards, they could put an eye out. This is not your grandma’s brittle. First off, there are no peanuts. Just seeds. Green pepitas (pumpkin seeds), black sesame seeds, and yellow mustard seeds. Grandma added baking soda, it foamed and added air to her brittle. But that also makes it opaque. I leave it out so the crisp sugar stays clear, and you can see the colorful seeds. And I slather it in dark chocolate, of course. It is dangerously good. So good it will become a holiday tradition at our house. This recipe comes together quickly, so quickly you must be prepared for every step before you start cooking. And it is dangerous to make. You boil sugar until it browns and emits tiny wafts of smoke. Then you have to work very, very quickly to add the rest of the ingredients, and thinly roll the molten sugar between two sheets of parchment paper. You MUST read the recipe thoroughly and completely before starting. Have everything measured and all your equipment ready before you start cooking. And this in only slightly in jest, put yellow caution tape around the kitchen before starting to protect small children, pets, and curious bystanders. At least tell everyone to Stay Out Of Your Way! This stuff is like lava, it is HOT.
