Recipe Wednesday:{Chocolate Peanut Butter Pumpkins}

Thankful For Easy Sweets. This is the time of year when we bring out our most cherished, traditional family recipes and spread some good cheer around with them. What we share with you today is not one of those beloved recipes, just something most people love, peanut butter and chocolate.We decided to give chocolate pumpkins a try and figured they could not be that hard with only two ingredients and hardly any steps in the process.We love how our little chocolate peanut butter pumpkins turned out of the mold looking rustic and homemade and a little rough around the edges. 
Just what we wanted for a Thanksgiving treat. 

We found the pumpkin mold at the Dollar Tree and for the rest of the ingredient's we used what we had in the pantry. Peanut butter and almond bark.

Melt down your chocolate bark and coat the mold with the chocolate using a clean kitchen brush. Place in the freezer until set up about 10 minutes. If you see a couple spots you missed go back and touch them up and pop back in the freezer a couple more minutes.

Drop about one measuring teaspoon of peanut butter into your set chocolate mold.

  Using a tablespoon cover the peanut butter with chocolate. A little messy looking, but tasty! Place in freezer for another 15-20 minutes to set up. That's it! When removing, the mold is flexible so you should be able to easily pop them out onto a countertop or table.

These could easily be set at each place setting in a little box or mini cupcake liner as a little table favor.

For not being candy makers, this idea turned out alright!

If you need a little extra something to add to your gathering, these really took little effort to make as long as you have all the ingredients on hand. Be inspired! Remember, keep it Homespun!
