These Chocolate Peanut Butter Pumpkin Cookies are a fun and easy way to make a special treat for Halloween!

Chocolate and peanut butter or peanut butter and chocolate – is always a fantastic flavor combination! So, for those of you who love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate together, this cookie should be right up your alley! Definitely one of my favorites!

The only pumpkin you will find in this cookie is the wonderful pumpkin shaped peanut butter and chocolate center just waiting to be enjoyed!

The cracks are suppose to be there; they’re a part of the cookie. This cookie also keeps very well in the fridge! That’s always a plus in my book. :)

Let’s take a look at how to put these Chocolate Peanut Butter Pumpkin Cookies together.

I strongly urge you to refrigerate the chocolate pumpkins for a couple of hours before you want to use them. This helps the pumpkins keep their fun pumpkin shape.

These wonderful peanut butter and chocolate pumpkins are so much fun to work with! Being that they’re made by Reese’s they have that wonderful flavor we all know and love. FYI – I picked up my chocolate pumpkins at Target, and they were even on sale!

After the cookies sit for a bit the chocolate on the outside of the pumpkin goes back to its original state and they can be touched and moved around without being messy. Always a good thing with the little goblins. :)
