Day thirteen…



The boys and I attempted to makes these adorable pumpkins this afternoon and it was a success! The recipe is as follows:

  • 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon orange gel icing color (I used Wilton copper)
  • 4 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • mini pretzels or pretzel sticks

Mix the first four ingredients with a mixer until they are completely blended. Then add the powdered sugar in small batches until it is all mixed in. Mix at a low speed or the powdered sugar will go everywhere. Once it is all mixed form into small balls and then use the back of a knife to add the lines on the pumpkins and then place the pretzel in the top like a stem. I used a very small ice cream scoop to make the scoops of “dough.”

They turned out really well and the boys liked them. Just a word of warning, they are very sweet. A little goes a long way. Enjoy!
