Pinned it, Made it! Monday ~ Week 12 ~

I know it's a little early for Pinned it, Made it! Monday, but I'm posting from Alabama and wanted to make sure I had it ready to go while I had a chance so you ladies can link up! 

Thursday evening, Luke, Joy and I had fun making these Peanut Butter Pumpkins.  This is the original pin and recipe from Mimi's Meals and Deals.

Source:  Mimi's Meals and Deals

Peanut Butter Pumpkins
1 1/2 sticks butter, room temp
1 cup peanut butter
1 box of 10x powdered sugar
Red and yellow food coloring
Milk chocolate chips
Mix peanut butter, butter and powdered sugar to make a play dough type mixture.  You can mix by hand, tedious as it is, or if you have a mixer with dough hooks it will do the job with little work from you.  Once well blended together add yellow and red food coloring until you reach a pretty pumpkin orange.  I use dough hooks and find that I still have to mix my color through a little by hand at the end just to get a more even consistent color.  Roll into small balls and top with a chocolate chip.


From Tammy: 

 When I saw this, I knew it would be fun for Luke, but it turned out being fun for Joy and me too!  It was like playing with play dough.  :) 

Here's ours:

They remind me of eating a chocolate peanut balls except without as much chocolate.  They're rich though!  Unfortunately, I was the one that liked them the best and I ate way too many!  :)  When we left for Alabama, I left the rest of them with my mom and dad and my mama loved them like I did!
