I made these Peanut Butter Pumpkin Bites many years ago for a #SundaySupper I participated in with my mom. I am sharing them here at Crazed Mom because Brie’s Bites is no longer. I am proud to join my mom here on her blog, since well – we are both Crazed Mom’s now!These Peanut Butter pumpkin bites last for almost 2 weeks in the fridge and are great for kids lunches, after school snacks or for a Halloween party or event. Make sure they are cold or chilled or you could have some soggy pumpkins on your hands.These Peanut Butter Pumpkin Bites are a Peanut Butter Lovers favorite snack. They also used to be my favorite after school snack. You will crave and want to make these over and over again. Oh, and have I mentioned? You don’t have to make them into pumpkins. I mean, that’s fun and you should, but they could be just balls or made into another shape!
Peanut Butter Pumpkin Bites
- ½ cup butter
- 1½ cups peanut butter
- 1 16 ounce package confectioners’ sugar, sifted
- red food coloring
- yellow food coloring
- green decorators icing
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 dough like 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.
Don’t you love the Peanut Butter Pumpkin Bites? And just since this was originally a part of a Sunday Supper event, I am going to add in the links to the recipes that it was part of (if they are still active). Be sure and check out the other fun foods shared for this event!
