So let me just say that I kinda, sorta made this… and it is delish! I didn’t actually have pumpkin seeds or dried cranberries. I did, however, have plenty of pecans and some dried pomegranates… just not enough. No problem. Threw in some dark chocolate chips to make up for it (teehee! good excuse, huh??)
