Pumpkin Candy Cups---Like a Reese's Cup But Pumpkiny!
I got this great recipe and idea from a Blog I found and you can find it here at
It is a wonderful fall inspired candy. I dressed mine up a bit for the holiday compared to the original suggestions by using orange candy melts that lined tiny paper candy wrappers (like mini cupcake wrappers) and then removed once the candy is set....the filling is pumpkin yummy. You then add another layer of melted white chocolate or candy melts on top to seal in the soft middle. You can see I added a pumpkin design with sprinkles and pretzels
and a tiny fondant leaf.

..and they made it to my Thanksgiving tray of treats last year. They really were a huge hit with the guests and the kids. Of course, they aren't following suit to my new and improved eating lifestyle, but you know there are those exceptions! Check out Megan's blog above and see her recipe and tutorial!
