This recipe is a relatively healthy snack that is also cute. It is perfect for when you are in the mood for something sweet, but you don’t want to go and eat a pastry. You can grab one of these out of the fridge and pop it in your mouth.

Easy peanut butter pumpkins (no-bake)

1 cup creamy peanut butter

½ cup butter, softened

3-4 cups powdered sugar

Orange food coloring

Chocolate chips, optional


  1. Beat the butter and peanut butter until creamy.
  2. Slowly add powdered sugar until a soft dough forms.
  3. Add orange food coloring in a little bit a time, until you reach the desired color, and mix until color is uniform.
  4. Scoop out tablespoons of the peanut butter mixture and roll them into balls with your hands and place them onto a tray lined with baking paper.
  5. Using a toothpick gently press into the sides and make creases to get a pumpkin shape.
  6. Repeat for all balls.
  7. Gently place chocolate chips for the stems.
  8. Refrigerate until ready to serve.


Store in a loosely sealed container for 1-2 days, or in the refrigerator if you want to save the balls for longer.
