Itty Bitty Punkin Treats

Hey y’all! Are you ready for a cute and yummy fall treat?
These little guys are “Itty Bitty Punkin’ Treats!” They may be tiny but they are pure deliciousness!
Here is what you need:
1 box powdered sugar
1 small jar peanut butter
1/2 stick of butter
red & yellow food coloring
chocolate chips
Mix powdered sugar, peanut butter and softened butter in a bowl just until combined.
 Mix red and yellow food coloring with 1/4 cup of water until you get the desired orange.
This was a good job for Little Man #2.

Add the food coloring, a little at a time, to the peanut butter mixture and mix well.

Roll the dough into small teaspoon size balls. Little Man #2 had fun helping me with this.

Use a toothpick to create criss-cross markings across the top of the balls.

Top each ball with a chocolate chip and you have your little punkins!

You can share or save them all for yourself! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. I โ™ฅ these, I really want to make them for a party this week, but some of my friends are allergic to peanuts. Is there some thing I can substitute?
    Thanks so much!!

  9. How much is a box of powdered sugar? We have bags here ๐Ÿ™‚
    Thinking Sunbutter would work in place of the peanut butter for allergies..

  10. I'm not sure of the exact amount in oz, but as far as I know, powdered sugar comes in a small box or a larger bag. This recipe requires one full box of powdered (confectioners) sugar. If you only have a bag, I would say it's about 2/3-3/4 of a bag. Just mix with other ingredients and add more if necessary. It should be a cookie dough like texture when it's rolled. Subs for PB I do not know. Maybe almond butter or another nut butter alternative.

  11. These are very yummy…..when I made this recipe last year it called for 1 stick of butter, now I see the recipe calls for 1/2 stick butter??? Not sure which one is right?
