Peanut Butter Pumpkins

READY IN: 40mins




  • Melt butter in a large bowl and add a few drops of yellow and red food coloring, until mixture has a nice orange color.
  • 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).
  • Shape dough into small balls shaped like pumpkins; make ridges on the pumpkins with a toothpick.
  • Add a small amount of green decorators icing to the top of each pumpkin for a stem.
  • Refrigerate, if desired, to allow pumpkins to firm.
  • Serve on a plate lined with toasted coconut and Halloween decorated cookies, if desired; these also look good on top of cupcakes.
