1 cup light corn syrup

1/2 cup water

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter cut into chunks

2 cups roasted salted pumpkin seeds

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Butter 2 (15x10x1-inch) baking pans; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine sugar, corn syrup and water in 4-quart heavy saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 8-12 minutes or until sugar is dissolved and mixture comes to a full boil.

  3. STEP 3

    Add butter; continue cooking, stirring occasionally, 15-25 minutes or until candy thermometer reaches 280°F, or small amount of mixture dropped into ice water forms hard but pliable strand.

  4. STEP 4

    Stir in pumpkin seeds; continue cooking, stirring constantly, 10-12 minutes or until candy thermometer reaches 305°F or small amount of mixture dropped into ice water forms hard brittle strand. Remove from heat; stir in baking soda.

  5. STEP 5

    Pour mixture immediately into prepared pans; spread evenly to about 1/4-inch thickness. Cool 5 minutes; sprinkle with sea salt. Cool completely.

  6. STEP 6

    Break into pieces. Store in container with tight-fitting lid.

Tip #1

- Any seed mixture could work. We also tried pumpkin and sunflower seeds. Try your favorite combination.

Tip #2

- Do not use fresh pumpkin seeds made at home from a fresh pumpkin.
