Three Seed Brittle

Not only is Three Seed Brittle ridiculously easy to prepare, but it makes the perfect DIY holiday gift for teachers and friends.

I love a pretty gift. I love a homemade gift. I love an easy gift.

This Three Seed Brittle satisfies all three of those criteria and it will likely have the recipient of this addictively delicious gift thinking you're a sophisticated and experienced baker. But honestly, this recipe couldn't be any easier.

Most candy brittles are made with nuts, but this one is packed with a variety of seeds, turning this treat into something truly out of the ordinary. The seeds caramelize right in the sweet honey and brown rice syrup and transform into a sweet and crunchy holiday treat that's perfect to make and individually wrap up as a unique gift for that special teacher, mailman or hostess in your life. I bet you get such a good response in fact that you may decide to make it your signature holiday gift for years to come!

    Would maple syrup work in place of rice syrup? I'm not familiar with rice syrup.
    Thank you!

    Would honey work in place of BRS? I found with research that it contains higher traces of arsenic in it so we don't use it.

    Dying to try this- but, found this just after grocery shopping, and a N'orester is about to hit Maine...I may play around with a little molasses & more honey instead of BRS, as I have none on hand. I think BRS is less sweet than maple/honey/molasses, right?

    I made this today and used 3 tbs maple syrup in place of the brown rice syrup. I cooked it for 10 min and it turned out perfectly! Thanks for another great recipe!

    I always double the recipe because it is so delicious. We love to eat this with greek yogurt and sometimes ice cream.

    Just made this with my 4 year old daughter!!! YUM! We couldn't stop eating it out of the bowl! What a great idea. Just as a side note - I added maple syrup, pine nuts and toasted almond shavings as well :))

    I'm now making my 3rd batch! Fabulous recipe. This time I added Chia seeds also (not too much since they expand, 1 Tbl). Thank you for this great gift idea.

    Hi! Just tried it - delicious! However mine is still a bit greasy - how much is 1 tbs butter? 15 grams? Or do I melt the butter first and do a liquid measure? Thanks!
