Learn how to make these super simple and delicious white chocolate coated peanut butter balls, shaped like pumpkins! These are perfect to make with children or for a Halloween party this spooky season.
You will need:
x1 180g tub of our natural peanut butter
220g of white chocolate
30g of milk or dark chocolate
55g salted butter
180g powdered icing sugar
16 cocktail sticks or skewers
Makes: 16 peanut butter pumpkins
Combine your peanut butter with room temperature butter, then gradually mix in the icing sugar to form a crumbly dough
2. Roll your dough into 16 small balls, using a skewer or butter knife to add grooves to your balls to resemble little pumpkins (make sure the grooves are deep enough so that they are still visible once coated in chocolate)
Melt 20g of your white chocolate in the microwave, dip the end of your skewers into the melted chocolate then into the top centre of the pumpkins and place in the fridge on a lined tray for at-least 30 minutes until the pumpkins have become firm and the chocolate has set
Melt the rest of your white chocolate in the microwave at half power in 20 second intervals, stirring each time until your chocolate is fully melted, if wanted, you can add orange food colouring to your chocolate. Chop up your milk chocolate into sticks for later
Remove your pumpkins from the fridge and dip each one in melted chocolate until they are fully coated, you may need a spoon to help you, allow the excess to drip off then place back your pumpkins back on your lined tray
carefully remove the skewers from your pumpkins. Dip a piece of your chopped milk chocolate in the melted white chocolate and place it at the top of your pumpkin where the skewer was, these are your pumpkin stems
Place your pumpkins back in the fridge for at-least 20 minutes to allow the chocolate to set.
