Peanut Recipes > Cookies > No-Bake Peanut Pumpkins
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 cup of finely-chopped peanuts
  • 1 packet milk coffee biscuits
  • 1 teaspoon of grated orange rind
  • 2 tablespoons of orange juice
  • 2 cups of icing sugar
  • 4 oz (about 100gm) semi-sweet dark eating chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons of melted butter
Method
  • Melt the chocolate in the top part of a double boiler over hot (not boiling!) water
     
  • Remove the chocolate from the heat when melted and add the butter, peanut butter, icing sugar, orange rind and juice, and stir to blend the mixture evenly
     
  • Crush the biscuits finely with a rolling pin and add them to the mixture together with the peanuts, then mix well again
     
  • Form the mixture into 1 inch balls, flatten them slightly and mark them to represent pumpkins
     
  • To finish these treats, roll them in orange-tinted granulated sugar and press a piece of citrus peel or green angelica into the top of each one for a pumpkin stem
No-Bake Peanut Pumpkins

Chris says: This recipe is very easy to make and the results are delicious.

You can also simplify it (if you're pressed for time) by leaving out the decorative effects and simply rolling the finished pumpkins in grated coconut instead.

Tip!
Store your peanut pumpkins in a covered box or tin. Don't refrigerate them or they'll become hard. If you prefer, you can reduce preparation time by rolling the finished pumpkins in coconut rather than decorating them.
