    Sharon123's Note:

    A great little recipe adapted from Southern Living magazine. These are sweet, so you might want to reduce the sugar a little, starting at 1/3 cup.

      This is a great recipe! My wife ate them and she doesn't care for pumpkin seeds. I added another 8-10 minutes bake time as the seeds were not cooked enough with only 6 minutes in oven. Will make these again, definitely!

      I love pumpkin seeds but these are quite sweet. Others in my family liked them more than I did... I just don't have much of a sweet tooth. I prepared these nuts to go with your delicious Green Salad With Candied Pumpkin Seeds . My stepson thinks they are great though, and was happy to take the leftovers to his room!

      These were wonderful! I actually made it in the microwave. I first microwaved them at 70% power for 1-1/2 minutes stirring every 30 seconds. I then added the other sugar mixture and did again for another 2-3 minutes at 70% power (1100 watt microwave). I spread them on the wax paper and came out perfectly. Dh couldn't keep his hands off them. LOL! ;) I used them with Green Salad With Candied Pumpkin Seeds and used pecans instead of pumpkin seeds. Thanks for the great recipe, Sharon123!
