  • 1 cup (198 g) sugar
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) light corn syrup, such as Karo
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) water
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice blend
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (80 g) dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup (59 g) raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/3 cup (47 g) whole natural almonds
  • 1/3 cup (35 g) pecan halves


  1. Line a baking sheet pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper and coat with nonstick spray; set aside. Spritz a wooden spoon with nonstick spray, too.
  2. Stir the sugar, corn syrup and water together in a heavy, deep pot. Clip a candy thermometer on the side, with the end of the thermometer in the middle of the sugar mixture and not touching the pan itself. Bring to a simmer over medium heat - do not stir, which would encourage crystallization - and allow to simmer for several minutes or until mixture reaches 300°F/150°C.
  3. Remove from the heat and quickly stir in the butter, vanilla, baking soda, pumpkin spice blend and salt. The mixture will bubble up, which is okay (and why you need a deep pot). Now quickly stir in the cranberries, pumpkin seeds, almonds and pecans until well mixed. Immediately pour onto prepared pan. Use the coated wooden spoon to coax the mixture into a large puddle, as thin as possible.
  4. Set the pan on a rack and let brittle cool completely. Once cooled, it can be broken into pieces. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

  • We like buying nuts and seeds in bulk and purchasing just what we need at the time. They can go bad easily, due to high oil content. If you have any leftover, store in an airtight container in the freezer.
