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!
These were extra sweet. I think having one whole cup of mixed sugar was a little too much. Very good though. And the orange juice was a nice touch.
I wanted to give this 5 stars, I really did. My family really loves pumpkin seeds. But these turned out way to sticky. The actual taste was wonderful, but they never really hardened for us (if that's what they're supposed to do.) I followed the directions and even let them cool overnight to see if the outcome would change. Thanks, though, I had fun photographing them :)
What a nice addition to salad (Green Salad With Candied Pumpkin Seeds). Very good, however I had problems removing the pumpkin seeds from the wax paper - next time instead of the wax paper I think I'll just spray the cookie sheet with Pam and I think they'll come off a lot easier. I also used some pumpkin seeds I had leftover (much less than the 2 cups) but also decreased the sugar topping ingredients too. Can't wait to make these again for Halloween! Thanks for sharing this keeper!
