Imagine a peanut butter cup minus the peanut butter but with pumpkin butter and coconut and Rice Krispies added to the chocolate shell! One epic candy and it’s homemade!

One essential ingredient in the recipe is Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter. If you haven’t tried this, please stop reading further and drive to your nearest Trader Joe’s. Go ahead, I’ll wait!

It is so AMAZING!!! Sweet, spicy, pumpkiny….a spoon is good enough to savor this butter. Try to use unseewetend shredded coconut because the pumpkin butter is sweet already.

All you need is a microwave to melt the chocolate. So, a fun project for little kiddos. Melt chocolate and stir Rice Krispies cereal in it.

Mix together pumpkin butter and unsweetened shredded coconut together.

Spread some melted chocolate mixture in the bottom of a muffin cup lined with paper liner. Place 2 tablepoons of coconut-pumpkin mixture and then spread some more melted chocolate on top. Sprinkle some shredded coconut on top. Got to make it pretty:) Let set in the refrigerator, but serve at room temperature.
