Peanut Butter-Pumpkin Buckeyes
Yield: 3 dozen Active Time 25 mins Total Time 1 hr 45 mins (includes chilling)


  • 1 stick plus 2 Tbs. unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 Tbs. creamy peanut butter
  • 6 tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin-pie spice
  • 2 cups (about 10 oz.) dark-chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable shortening

Make It

1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, use your hands to knead butter, peanut butter, pumpkin puree, sugar, flour, salt, and pumpkin-pie spice into a smooth, firm dough. Roll the dough into tablespoon-size balls. Place on the prepared sheet and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.

2. Melt chocolate chips and vegetable shortening in a double boiler and whisk until smooth. Use a toothpick or skewer to dip each candy ball into the melted chocolate mixture, leaving the top uncovered if desired, and return it to the pan. Remove toothpick.

3. Chill candies in the refrigerator until the chocolate sets, about 20 minutes. Keep refrigerated until ready to pack and keep cool while traveling.
