    These are a sweet twist on the usual salty roasted pumpkin seeds. A nice treat round Halloween, especially if you are trying to get your kids to eat something other than chocolate!

    I made these for Halloween and put them in a glass jar calling them "cockroaches" - they were delicious!  -  12 Nov 2010


    I wish I had paid more attention to the reviews! (There were only 2 of them when I made this recipe.) The oven temp on this recipe is obviously way too high, especially compared to other toasted pumpkin seed recipes. That should have thrown a red flag for me, but I didn't trust my instincts, and instead followed the recipe, only to end up with burned seeds. Too bad, I really liked the idea of a sweet alternative to a seasonal favorite. Maybe I'll try again next year with a 275 degree oven...  -  03 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great recipe, thanks! I followed the recipe to a T, except, after reading the reviews, I baked in 7 minute intervals, instead of 15.  -  31 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
