Whenever we carve pumpkins into jack o lanterns, we never know what to do with the pumpkin seeds. It seems like such a waste to just to throw them in the trash — especially after we’ve gutted poor Jack of his insides. But when we try to roast pumpkin seeds in the oven, they never seem to come out right. We either over salt them or just burn them to a crisp.

Thankfully we’ve got this video here to turn us into pumpkin seed-making pros. We’ve got 3 easy ways to make really impressive, fancy pumpkin seed recipes. Rosemary and garlic for the zesty lovers out there, spicy chili flavored for if you want your seeds to have a smokey kick, and pumpkin spice if you want your pumpkin seeds to taste like your lattes. Try it yourself for the perfect snack to serve guests at your Halloween party.
