Ingredients
  • 1 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds (shelled)
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds (shelled)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Non-stick spray
Directions

In a saute pan, toast the seeds over medium heat for 2 minutes until golden (the pumpkins will pop). Combine the water, honey, and sugar in a saucepan. Over high heat, bring the syrup to 240 degrees F. Add the seeds and bring the syrup to hard crack (250 degrees F). Spritz a cookie sheet with non-stick spray and pour the syrup onto it. After a few minutes, score the candy into 2 by 1/2-inch bars. Let harden, and then cut into bars.

    Wayne said on the live show that it should be cooked to 310-320
    I enjoyed the taste, however... please correct the recipe...
     
    250 is hard crack???
    I followed the recipe exactly and used a candy thermometer, but the resulting candy was way too sweet.
