This recipe yields 10 - 15 pumpkins, depending on how thick you make the peanut butter. If you make larger shapes, you will also end up with less.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can this recipe be doubled or tripled?
Absolutely - you can multiply this recipe and make a ton at a time for an event or party! Just work in small batches when dipping the shapes in chocolate. (Keep most of the peanut butter shapes in the freezer while you are dipping the others in chocolate - doing small batches at a time will help them to stay cold.)
What shapes of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups can you make?
You can make any shape that you want - pumpkins, ghosts, Christmas trees, Easter eggs, hearts for Valentine's Day, leaves for Fall - seriously, if you have a cookie-cutter, you can make whatever you want!
Are these Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Pumpkins Gluten-Free?
Yes! The fun part about making these at home is that you can make them using ingredients that you know have not been cross-contaminated.
What can you replace peanut butter with if you are allergic?
You can use Sunflower Seed Butter - this will be the most peanutty taste. It is more expensive, but if you are allergic to peanuts - it is definitely worth it!
Can you replace the milk with a dairy-free alternative?
You can replace the milk with an equivalent amount of almond milk, oat milk, or cashew milk - I would not use coconut milk - you will notice the taste.
I highly recommend storing these in the refrigerator or freezer if your home is kept at 65°F or warmer - they will get really soft as they do not have any stabilizers or preservatives in them.
- Store these Homemade Reese's treats in the fridge or freezer when they are not being served - they will soften quickly at room temperature.
- Sprinkle a bit of sea salt on top of these as the chocolate is cooling - so yummy.
- I like to use a marble rolling pin when rolling out this dough - the marble is really cold, so it helps to keep the dough cold longer and it is easier to work with when it is cold. (Marble rolling pins are great for making biscuits and scones as well, where you need to keep the dough cold for longer.
- Drizzle melted caramel over the shapes after they cool for added deliciousness!
