Candied Espresso and Brown Sugar Seeds Recipe


  • Seeds of 1 medium pumpkin (about 1/2 cup), orange flesh removed, patted dry
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
  • 4 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 egg


  1. 1.

    Mix together 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract, 2 teaspoons instant espresso powder, and 4 teaspoons brown sugar in a bowl to form a paste. Set aside.

  2. 2.

    Crack the whites of one egg into a small bowl and quickly whip just until small bubbles form. Pour a little over the seeds to coat lightly, then let excess egg whites drip off through your fingertips or a colander.

    Drop the seeds into the espresso mixture and rub together to coat. Pour the seeds onto a rimmed baking sheet and roast.

    Eat all in your pajamas. Tell no one.
