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! Candy Corn Cookie Cups is 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.
