Peanut Butter Pumpkins

Peanut Butter Pumpkins by car2ngrl

Need a festive project for the kids that's SUPER simple? This is it.


  • 1 pound powdered sugar
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cups butter, softened
  • yellow & red food coloring
  • chocolate chips
about 2 dozen


Using the dough hook on your mixer, combine the sugar, peanut butter, and butter.

Once smooth, add enough food coloring to reach the desired orange [pumpkin] color. If necessary, stir by hand to get a consistent color.

Roll into small balls and, if desired, use the back of a table knife to add ribs to the exterior.

Place one chocolate chip stem on the top.

Serve immediately or chill if you prefer firmer pumpkins.
