Pumpkin Crunch

I have been wanting to make my very own Pumpkin Crunch for some time, I find Mrs May's Pumpkin Crunch so addictive and so pricey that it was a matter of urgency...either I make it at home or go without, And going without wasn't an option, You will be so surprised just how much these rival the originals.

1/8 cup Organic Rice Syrup
1 Tbsp Sugar
2 cups Pepitas (Pumpkin Seeds)
1/3 cup Sesame Seeds
Pinch salt (optional)

Pre-heat oven to 170C, 325°F Gas mark 3, In a dry frying pan over medium heat, add the pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds and dry fry till they start to pop and get crispy and very lightly golden, Tip in to a bowl and set aside.
In a small saucepan add the sugar and rice syrup and bring to a boil... turn off when the sugar dissolves.
Pour the mixture straight in to the bowl of seeds and mix to coat well, Pour in to a slice tin lined with baking paper and press it all down firmly packing it in tightly, (A tip for you so it doesn't stick on your hands is to put just a drop of olive oil or vegetable oil and rub hands together). Pop it in to the oven for 15mins or till it starts to turn a light golden color, Take it out and leave it to cool on the bench for 1 hour and cut into bite size pieces.  Enjoy!! =)
