Hello my beauties,
Recently I have been enjoying so many new and great blogs and they have given me so many good ideas I want to try out. Now I have to admit I'm not a great lover of cooking, I do enjoy it when the mood takes me but on a day-to-day basis its not my cup of tea. But when certain recipes crop up I add them to a list of things to try out (although most of them never get crossed off the list). But when I came across a Peanut Butter Brownie Pumpkin recipe I just had to do it!!
As it reached Halloween and I had some time off I decided to take the plunge and do it. I found this recipe from Wifessionals which is a blog I have been really enjoying recently and you must check her out!
So this is what Kaitlyn from Wifessionals pumpkins looked like:

How amazing and yummy do they look!? Now here is my attempt:
|My attempt! The best of the bunch|
Ha ha! They look totally different! To be fair, the problem I found was the bag of Orange flavour buttons that I used for the coating (Kaitlyn used Wiltons Candy Melts in orange flavour) wasn't big enough, the coating worked well for a few of the pumpkins and had I bought 3 bags of buttons then I think they'd have all been coated a bit more and I could have used some for decoration.
|My attempt - it was all going well before the coating!|
|My attempt - I was so close!|
Oh well, at least I tried and I'm glad I did! I don't think I will be quitting my day job to do this full time, but hey were still so scrummy!
I took them with me to the party and let Andy (the Boyf) and his flatmate scoff them down! They enjoyed them, so it was all worth it.
