These peanut butter cookie cups are super fun with pumpkin candy corn added to them. Kids of all ages will love this Halloween treat.

Peanut Butter Candy Corn Cookie Cups Recipe. I used the pumpkin candy corn - perfect for a Halloween party!

Now say that title ten times fast!  It’s a real tongue twister.  You are going to LOVE these cookie cups for the up-and-coming Halloween.  They are always super popular and my readers have all said great things about them.  Did I mention they are cute?!  They are almost too cute to even eat….almost.  I’m always looking for fun ways to use these pumpkin candy corn, because let’s face it, they are way more fun than the normal stuff.  These would be perfect for a kids’ party or even a bake sale (as long as nobody is allergic to peanuts, of course).  Adults will love them just as much as the kids, I guarantee that.

Did you have a chance to enter my avocado giveaway that I posted on Monday? If you didn’t, here’s the link:

All you have to do is leave a comment on that post saying your favorite way to eat avocados.  Easy as pie!…or I should say,  easy as these cookies I’m sharing with you today. I hope you’re not spent on candy corn yet and you make these because they are fun to make AND to eat.  I actually eat candy corn all year ’round because I’m super weird like that.  And my obsession with cookie cups continues…
