Peanut Butter Pumpkins

Peanut Butter Pumpkins
By: Sue Lau at

My notes:
I did add extra sugar to where it was a consistency that I was happy with so if you are not happy with the texture of the dough keep adding more powdered sugar (little by little) until you can work with it.
I also had a little helper rolling all of those tiny pumpkins for me. He was a big help. Thanks Elijah for helping mommy to get those done. He went on a field trip today and that's where the hat came in to play. Thanks to Ryan (big brother) for the photograph.


1/2 cup butter

1 1/2 cups peanut butter

1 (16 ounce) package confectioners' sugar, sifted

red food coloring

yellow food coloring

green decorators icing for stems (or just add some food coloring to any white tub icing)

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 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 small amount of green decorators icing to the top of each pumpkin for a stem.

5 Refrigerate, if desired, to allow pumpkins to firm.

Suggestion: These also look good on top of cupcakes.
