Peanut Butter Pumpkins

Makes 15 pumpkins


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 1 (16 ounce) package confectioner's sugar, sifted
  • red food coloring
  • yellow food coloring
  • chocolate chips


  1. Melt butter in a large bowl and add a few drops of yellow and red food coloring, until mixture has a nice orange color. (I was lazy and did not dye the food. I left it as is)
  2. Add the peanut butter and confectioners sugar and mix together until a doughlike consistency is reached. (This means that when the dough is nice and stiff and it gets hard to add any more sugar, to let it go at that).
  3. Shape dough into small balls shaped like pumpkins; make ridges on the pumpkins with a toothpick.
  4. Add a chocolate chip to the top of each pumpkin for a stem.
  5. Refrigerate, if desired, to allow pumpkins to firm.
  6. Serve on a plate lined with toasted coconut and Halloween decorated cookies, if desired; these also look good on top of cupcakes.
