Caramelized Pumpkin Seeds

After carving up a pumpkin for the Fall season, most people chuck out their leftover seeds. Why not try something new this Halloween season? If you don’t have a candy thermometer, just eyeball step three. This recipe would be great to hand out to trick-or-treaters.
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch caramel sauce
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon extract
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 3 cups pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup of almonds, crushed

  2. Continue cooking until mixture reaches 310 degrees. Stir in seeds.
  3. Spread seeds onto sheet and sprinkle with almonds. Separate seeds until cooled.
