Delicious and different for snacking or gifts. Easy to make. Requires a candy thermometer for best results. If you use roasted seeds, omit 1/2 of the salt.

  3. Stir in sunflower seeds and butter. Cook on medium to 300 degree (hard-crack stage).
  4. Remove from the heat; vigorously stir in vanilla and baking soda.
  5. Pour into a buttered 15x10x1" baking pan; spread evenly to fill pan. Cool completely.
  6. Break into pieces. Store in an airtight container with waxed paper between layers to prevent sticking.
