Once upon a time (aka when I was back in high school 600 years ago) I threw a super cool (in my view) Halloween party. I literally sat down and cut out like 50 bats out of black cartridge paper and bought all the fake skulls and fake web I could. Halloween used to be one of my favourite “holidays” and it’s been a while since I’ve even done anything to celebrate it. I’m pretty sure Thanksgiving and Christmas took its place. Anyway, I realised that these Pumpkin Chocolate Cups are little candies that would be a perfect way to celebrate Halloween or any other holiday party.
Or you know, just life, cause they’re perf for any celebration. Little morsels of goodness indeed.
Speaking of Halloween, what are you doing for it? Are you going out and celebrating, or do you have little ones are you’re taking them trick-or-treating? My plans include eating these Pumpkin Chocolate Cups and watching a non-horror flick. Truth be told, I am not good at horror movies. So I’ll probably be watching Halloween town for the 500th time, or Hocus Pocus. . I’ll probably make some caramel corn while I’m at it and maybe even grab one of those skulls to “decorate” the TV area to get in the spooky mood.
These cups will rock your life. I’ve made peanut butter cups before, but these really take it up a notch. In an effort to put pumpkin into all the things this fall, I knew I wanted to make some kind of easy candy with pumpkin, when these popped into my head.
I had just used this same container for my Cauliflower Pizza Bites and remembered devouring, I mean sharing, my peanut butter cups last year. I still have endless amounts of pumpkin puree left over and was like hey, self, we should totally make chocolate cups but with pumpkin too!!
Okay, so if you’ve never tried pumpkin and chocolate, trust me, you’re missing out. They are a fabulous duo. Whether it’s chocolate and pumpkin sweet bread or breakfast cookies, they pair so well together. These cups have a delicious, pumpkin flavour that’s amped up thanks to the addition of pumpkin spice in their too. They’re the perfect quick and easy no bake holiday candy.
These Pumpkin Chocolate Cups are easy and straight forward to make. Actually, I’m pretty sure they deserve a video of how to make them. Melt your chocolate. Coat the cups and freeze for a bit. Fill with the pumpkin filling. Freeze a bit more. Pour the rest of the chocolate on top, and freeze. Done and done. SO yummy, and you could even customise them with some with some extra candy if you want. Bound to be finished within a week minimum because they’re so easy to pop into your mouth.
Enough of my rambling, go off to make and enjoy these! They’re great if you need treats in a pinch. Friends coming over, movie night, or to give to kiddos. Chances are they’ll be done before the first half of your favourite Halloween movie. Enjoy friends!
