Peanut Butter Pumpkin Blossoms
It’s no secret that my favorite combination is chocolate and peanut butter. So when Halloween rolls around you can bet I’m scarfing down Pumpkin shaped Reese’s like it’s my job. There is something about the Reese’s during the holidays that is just so much better. I think it’s something to do with the peanut butter to chocolate ratio. Well if you’re wondering what to do with your kids extra Halloween candy this is just that. These peanut butter pumpkin blossoms are super easy to make and allow your kids to take part in a fun family activity instead of just getting an instant sugar high from finishing their candy that night…
And since it is for Halloween just consider this a dressed-up version of the classic peanut butter cookie, you’ll find that adding sweet candy to this salty cookie goodness creates peanut butter pumpkin blossom cookies, a match made in baking heaven.
