I have found my new favorite treat. Sweet & salty roasted pumpkin seeds….sooooo delicious! The best part is that they are really easy and can be made in no time. These are all things I’m looking for when I’m having a sweet tooth attack.

After you pull these seeds out of the oven you have to give them a few minutes to cool down. If you try to eat them hot off the pan you will burn your fingers with hot sugar. I know this because it happened to me. Don’t be dumb like me…ok? Smile

After the seeds have cooled you can break them apart. Because the sugar melts in the oven all the seeds will get stuck together…kinnda like a brittle. However, it breaks apart really easy so you can fill a whole bowl with this delicious treat. I also sprinkled my seeds with a little pinch of additional salt after they got out of the oven…yum!
