    Sue Lau's Note:

    Be a nut and putter your bumpkins. Have your own pumpkin patch right in your kitchen. After reading Melanie's helpful review, I thought it best to emphasize that you should add sugar to the dough until it is very stiff and leave it at that.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    pumpkins

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 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.
    2. 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. 3
      Shape dough into small balls shaped like pumpkins; make ridges on the pumpkins with a toothpick.
    4. 4
      Add a small amount of green decorators icing to the top of each pumpkin for a stem.
    5. 5
      Refrigerate, if desired, to allow pumpkins to firm.
    6. 6
      Serve on a plate lined with toasted coconut and Halloween decorated cookies, if desired; these also look good on top of cupcakes.

      These are so good and so cute! Very easy to make and fun doing it. From young to old loved them. I used a tube of green icing to make the leaves and a tube of chocolate icing to make little stems on top. I never got a chance to put them on a plate with the coconut or refridgerate them. I was almost finished making them when everyone walked in and they are almost all gone. Great for any fall occasion, Halloween, Thanksgiving, class parties or just a great taste treat. I can't wait to make more and in different shapes and colors for other events and holidays. Super recipe, thanks for posting.

      Fun recipe. We made these into hearts for Valentine's Day - the red food coloring didn't work very well - I would've had to use a lot to make the hearts red. I melted some semi-sweet chocolate chips and 'iced' the hearts with it. These were a big hit at a winter retreat!
