1/2 cup butter, melted
1-1/2 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
1 (1 lb.) package powdered sugar, sifted
red & yellow food coloring (or orange)
1 small tube green decorator's icing (or green jelly bellies)
Add red and yellow (or orange) food coloring to butter until it is a bright orange. Pour into a medium mixing bowl. Add peanut butter and powdered sugar and stir well until combined. Should be the consistency of stiff dough. Shape dough into about 15 small pumpkin-like balls. Using the side of a toothpick, create ridges down each pumpkin. Place pumpkins on waxed paper. Using a tiny amount of green decorator's frosting (or make your own), add a little green stem to each pumpkin.
Refrigerate until firm, at least 1-2 hours. Makes about 2 dozen
Serve on a plate with green-tinted coconut, and some gummy worms and/or spiders (for Halloween) or LEAF cut-out sugar COOKIES.
