Chocolate Covered Pumpkin Candies

Happy Halloween Again!

This one was inspired by a recipe over on I tweaked it to my liking and made pumpkins instead of mice.

2 cups crispy rice cereal
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup coconut flakes
1/4 cup margarine
1/2 cup peanuts
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1 additional bag of chocolate chips (for melting and dipping)
wax paper

In a large mixing bowl, mix together all of the ingredients (except the extra package of chocolate chips) with your hands until you have a massive sticky, gooey mess. Then form small disc shapes, about 1/2" thick and 2" in diameter. Place on wax paper.

In a glass bowl, melt your chocolate chips in the microwave. I go one minute, stir, 30 seconds, stir...until fully melted. Dip each disc in chocolate and return to wax paper to cool and harden.

Decorate as desired! I used Marzipan to make my faces. Now, listen, I am no chocolatier! Nor am I a marzipan artiste, but these are easy, cute and I like my treats to look more like tricks anyhow!
