Recipe Comments & Reviews

We did these last year and now my daughter just asked to do them again.Not too sweet,We like them.
My childred wanted me to make them something with the pumpkin seeds. I tried this recipe and they loved it. They took some to school and their classmates enjoy them! Here it is fall again and they are begging for more pumpkin seeds. Good source of fiber too!
The sugar burns in the oven and the pumpkin seeds taste burnt. The seeds are fine but the sugar coating tastes terrible.
