I’d like to say happy fall y’all. I don’t know which part of the country (or world) you are in, but I hope you are able to enjoy some fall-like weather. Here in South Carolina it was 87 degrees today. In parts of Colorado, I heard it was snowing. What happened to fall? Did Mother Nature forget about it this year?
Well, besides the weather, fall is showing its colors and everything is apples and pumpkins. This is an old post, but I thought I’d re-share because it’s a really cute idea for a 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
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!
I should note that the first time I posted this recipe I had a lot of emails asking about the bake time. There is no baking!
By the way, forgive the appearance of my blog! Not sure what happened but something removed the buttons on the sidebar and also the design of the blog. Oops! Anyway, a new design is in the works and I can’t wait to reveal!
