Test your teeth: Jacques Torres pumpkin seed brittle06 Dec 2010, Posted by Jacques Torres in
When Jacques Torres isn’t out fishing or thinking about sex he can still come up with great new chocolate-based treats. The seasonal pumpkin seed brittle is a perfect example. It’s really quite different from peanut brittle. It has a more mild flavor and seems slightly less heavy, which means you can eat more (see below).
What’s great about the pumpkin seed brittle besides the smooth dark chocolate exterior coating, is that it’s slightly more crumbly and less tooth-cracking than say, a standard peanut or almond brittle. This allows you to eat a whole bag in one sitting. If you tried to do this with a standard nut brittle, your teeth would start hurting before too long, preventing you from overindulging. Makes a great gift too.
Recommended: Jacques Torres Pumpkin Seed Brittle $6.50 for a bag.
