Reviews for Mocha Pumpkin Seeds
"I didn't have coffee granules on hand and I subbed out the sugar for honey but otherwise kept it the same. I had trouble separating the pumpkin seeds so it's more like a brittle but I still think it's a hit. Both my kids like it and it's a great snack."
"Very tasty! Make sure you stir them so they don't stick together in a big clump."
"Very yummy snack and as Sue said~ one that's good for you! I even sub'd a coconut palm sugar that is a little healthier and came out great. Thanks Rebekah!"
