Pepita Brittle

  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup agave

  2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and agave, stir to combine. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Continue to cook without stirring, until syrup is medium amber and candy thermometer reads 280 degrees, about 8 minutes.

    I’ve missed visiting! I’m so glad my arm is healing and I can type again. This looks so good (as always) and I’m already hungry again even though I just finished breakfast. Much love and many blessings from Austin!

    Brittle doesn’t get made much at my place because I end up going addictive on the stuff…and then I sadly blame it on hormones. I’m not joking!

    I do however, have the necessity to eat healthy…therefore, if pepitas are enveloped in brittle…so be it.
    Oh, what a sacrifice you dmeand of me Bonnie. LOL

    Have a great weekend,
