Combine 1/3 cup each golden raisins and rum in a bowl and microwave for 3 minutes. Heat 1/2 stick butter, 1/2 cup green pumpkin seeds (pepitas) and a pinch of salt in a skillet until the seeds are golden and the butter turns nutty brown. Stir in the raisin-rum mixture and 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar. Spoon over store-bought rice pudding.
