Reeses Pumpkin Cups


Reeses Pumpkin Cups, also known as Pumpkin Reeses, are a wonderful dessert. Everyone knows that Reese Peanut Butter Cups are one of the most delicious and taste desserts ever invented. Chocolate mixed with peanut butter is wonderful! Chocolate mixed with pretty much anything is delicious. I am a chocolate loving person. We love chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, etc.

I think you are getting the picture. Chocolate is just good! Go ahead and get your stuff together and lets make some of these delicious Reeses Pumpkin Cups 🙂

Ingredients for: Reeses Pumpkin Cups

(Note: this recipe makes 12-14 Cups).

  • 6 oz dark chocolate (6 squares)
    ¼ cup peanut smooth butter (We like Jif)
    ¼ cup pumpkin puree (You can make you own form fresh pumpkin if you have it available)
    1 teaspoon maple syrup (Syrup brand of Choice, we like Log Cabin)

Directions for: Reeses Pumpkin Cups

  1. Add your dark chocolate In a microwave safe bowl.
    Microwave this for one minute, remove and stir.
    Microwave for 20 more seconds and stir again. Repeat 2-3 times or until all chocolate is melted.
    In a medium sized bowl, melt the peanut butter (microwave for 25 seconds), then mix in the pumpkin puree and maple syrup. Set this mix aside.
    Line a Mini Cupcake Pan with silicone cupcake liners (We like Silicone) and fill 1/4 of the way with melted chocolate. Place these in the freezer for about 10 minutes until the chocolate hardens.
    Spoon a small blob of the peanut butter/pumpkin filling onto the chocolate (A small dime sized amount) and cover the filling with more melted chocolate, filling the liner about 3/4 of the way.
    Place in freezer for about 15 minutes, or until hardened.
    Enjoy in moderation if possible. 🙂
