Sweet and Spicy Roasted Pumpkin Seeds


Sweet and Spicy Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

In honor of Halloween next week, I’m doing a flashback post. No, I’m not going to recap my Halloween costumes past…I already did that this week. Instead, I’m going to flashback to a post I wrote back in 2011 highlighting my sweet and spicy roasted pumpkin seeds. My blog was a lot smaller back then and I had really just found the blogging community that fall. For some reason, this particular post has blown up on Pinterest in the past week! Since Pinterest finds it useful, I thought my lovely readers and friends would appreciate it to. So here is a re-post of my Sweet and Spicy Roasted Pumpkin Seeds! Just in time for you to carve your pumpkins and pick the goopy seeds out.

Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

Smokey and spicy for a savory snack.


  • 1 cup of pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tsp Worcester sauce
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp melted butter


Preheat the oven to 275 degrees. Mix all of the ingredients together in a baking dish. Bake for 45 minutes, let cool and enjoy!

Sweet Pumpkin Seeds

Sweet, salty and delicious. Similar to kettle corn.


  • 1 cup of pumpkin seeds
  • 1 1/2 tbsp of butter
  • 1 tbsp of sugar and a dash of salt


Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Mix seeds, butter and sugar together in a bowl. Spread out along a foil wrapped baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt then bake for 25 minutes, let cool and enjoy!
