Reese's Pumpkin Cupcakes... and a giveaway! *CLOSED*

 It's no secret around here that I love Halloween! I've already been baking lots of pumpkin flavored things, including pumpkin spice whoopie pies, pumpkin donuts & pumpkin snickerdoodle cookies. But this time, I went with peanut butter flavored, shaped like a pumpkin.

 Everyone in this house loves Reese's Peanut Butter cups, so we were all excited when I received two bags of these yummy Reese's Pumpkins! You only see one bag here because the first bag may or may not have been eaten before I could do anything with them...

 I figured I'd better get myself in gear before the other bag got eaten too! So I baked up some cupcakes and used some remaining frosting from Blake's Halloween birthday. I thought about doing a chocolate cupcake and peanut butter frosting, but honestly, I don't like peanut butter frosting!

Gather your unwrapped Reese's and fill a bag with your frosting. I used a Wilton round tip, size 2. 

 Then just add the face of your choice. I went with a classic jack o' lantern for this guy.


 Then just add it to your cupcake and you're done! I think they turned out cute. I should have added a green leaf though I guess.

If you are ready for more Halloween fun, head over to Hershey's Boo Blvd. There you will find crafts, recipes & more!

Now how about that giveaway? How would you like to win two bags of Reese's Peanut Butter Pumpkins? One lucky reader will!

It's a toss-up between Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Twix for my favorite. Least favorite has always been anything with coconut (Almond Joy, Mounds). Those always went straight to my mom & dad. :)
