Pumpkin Seed Brittle

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, plus more for baking sheet
1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 cup fresh pumpkin seeds, rinsed well, dried, and toasted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter an 11-by-17- inch rimmed baking sheet; set aside.

Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in sugar and honey. Bring to a boil. Cook, without stirring, until mixture is medium amber and a candy thermometer registers 280 degrees. about 6 minutes. Stir in pumpkin seeds. Cook until mixture reaches 300 degrees. about 2 minutes. Pour onto prepared baking sheet. Let cool completely. Break into pieces.
