Pumpkin Puffs

These are just WAY too cute... Check out this awesome recipe... I just wish I could remember where I got it from.

1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
3 1/2 cups Reese's Puffs cereal

orange food coloring (or equal parts red and yellow food coloring)
pretzel sticks
green gumdrops

In a large pan melt corn syrup and sugar on medium high heat until sugar is dissolved. Turn off the heat and stir in peanut butter, white chocolate chips, and orange food coloring. Add the orange food coloring to desired color. I like the Wilton brand colors because they are very bright. You want to mix it quickly so that it doesn't cool down too fast. If it does cool down too fast turn the heat back on for a second. Stir in the Reese's Puffs and coat as well as you can. Don't worry, when you form your pumpkins it will get more incorporated.

Let the mixture cool slightly.

When it is cool enough to handle start making golf sized pumpkin balls, forming well with your hands.
Form them around the pretzel sticks for pumpkin stems. Place on waxed paper to set.

Quarter the green gumdrops and use two slices for the pumpkin leaves.

Makes 15 pumpkins.
