Peanut Butter Pretzel Pumpkins

Author: Lisa Longley


  • 1/3 of a cup creamy peanut butter softened
  • 1/3 of a cup of powdered sugar
  • 24 pretzels
  • 24 green candy coated sunflower seeds
  • a bag of orange candy melts
  • 1/4 of a cup melted chocolate optional


  • Mix the softened peanut butter and powdered sugar together.
  • Spread evenly in the pretzels, setting them on wax paper.
  • Put the pretzels (on the wax paper) in the freezer for 15 minutes.  While they are setting, melt the candy melts following the instructions on the bag.
  • Take two pretzels at a time out of the freezer and dip them in the chocolate.  Note: mine were cute on the front and a mess on the back, but delicious all around.  If you want them to look more perfect, you may want to do a second dipping in the orange melts once the first layer sets.
  • While the orange is still wet, place a sunflower seed at the top of each one for the stem.
  • If you wish, once the orange is dry, melt some chocolate, and put it in a zip loc bag, cutting a teenie tiny corner off the end.  Pipe on a little pumpkiny face.  Now cackle at the pumpkin as you devour him.
