cute nummy pumpkins

Hi all, these cute pumpkins are edible, super easy to make and fun for the kids. Just get 1 bag Peanut butter chips, one store bought vanilla frosting, stick pretzels, oreos and some orange food coloring (not the liquid, but gel coloring works best.) Melt the chips on low heat, once they are completely melted, take off the burner, then mix in the food coloring and the frosting. Put in the fridge for about an hour. While it is cooling in the fridge, crush the oreos, then place them in a cute platter. Once the mixture is cool, roll into 1" balls. Stick a peice of a pretzel in the tops, with a toothpick or knife draw the lines in the pumpkin. Place in the dirt. Done. Cute and fun. I did make a frosting mixture and turned it green and added the green to the top, this doesn't need to be done, but makes a nice finishing touch. Have fun!

The pumpkins are really good. We will remember that for last year. Kate was looking for the orange pumpkins to carve but unfortunately they did not seem to be available this year. Our round pumpkins are Queensland Blue (Cucurbita pepo, if that means anything to you)_which are not good for carving - wrong shape, wrong colour, wrong everything in fact.

Those look so cute. I don't eat peanuts - i wonder if there is a substitute?
