Peanut Butter Pumpkins

Want your kids to think you’re the coolest mummy around? Make this tricked-out treat and they’ll be singing your praises – at least until all the ghastly goodies are gobbled up. And, of course, I have the perfect peanut butter treat this Halloween – Peanut Butter Pumpkins!

Peanut Butter Pumpkins
Yields 15

½ cup butter
1 ½ cups peanut butter
1 (16 ounce) package confectioner’s sugar, sifted
Red food coloring
Yellow food coloring
Green decorators icing

Melt butter in 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 dough-like consistency is reached (This mean 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 lines with toasted coconut and Halloween decorated cookies, if desired; these also look good on cupcakes.
