  • 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)
  • 1 bag small Tootsie Roll Midgees®


  • 1
    In a large pan melt corn syrup and sugar on medium high heat until sugar is dissolved. Do not heat too long or it will make your mixture tough.
  • 2
    Turn off the heat and stir in peanut butter, white chocolate chips, and orange food coloring.
  • 3
    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.
  • 4
    Stir in theReese's Puffs® and coat as well as you can. Don't worry, when you form your pumpkins it will get more incorporated.
  • 5
    Let the mixture cool slightly.
  • 6
    When it is cool enough to handle start making golf sized pumpkin balls, forming well with your hands.
  • 7
    Stick a Tootsie Roll Midgees® into the top leaving about 1/2 of the candy still showing. Quarter the green gumdrops and use two slices for the pumpkin leaves. Quarter the green gumdrops and use two slices for the pumpkin leaves.
