Chocolate-Cinnamon Brittle With Pumpkin Seeds

Courses: Dessert
Serves: 24 people

Recipe Ingredients

1/2 cup 99g / 3.5ozUnsalted butter - (1 stick)
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlCinnamon
1 oz 28gUnsweetened chocolate - finely chopped
1/2 cup 99g / 3.5ozSugar
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlVanilla extract
1   Egg
1/3 cup 20g / 0.7ozFlour
1/2 cup 55g / 1.9ozRaw hulled pumpkin seeds

Recipe Instructions

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line an 18- by 12 1/2-inch jellyroll pan or large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the cinnamon (Don't be tempted to leave out the cinnamon; it's what makes the pumpkin seeds commune with the chocolate). Remove from the heat, add the chocolate and stir until it is completely melted. Stir in the sugar, vanilla and egg, and mix until smooth. Stir in the flour and beat well.

Pour the batter into the pan and spread as thin and evenly as possible (it may not cover the entire surface). The mixture may have a slight elasticity, but it will even out and adhere to the parchment paper as you continue with the spreading. Sprinkle the pumpkin seeds evenly over the top.

Bake until the brittle is just set, 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool on a rack for 20 minutes. Break or cut into about 2 dozen rough pieces, as you would nut brittle. Store in an airtight tin if not serving immediately.

This recipe yields about 2 dozen pieces.
