My favorite part of carving a pumpkin for Halloween is the pumpkin seeds. These cocoa flavored ones are great to munch on! Tips for crispier seeds: start with a sugar pumpkin. Put seeds in pot cover with water. Salt water like you would for pasta. Bring to a boil. Start timer for 10 minutes. Drain and pat dry.
