easy pumpkin candies No Bake Pumpkin Candies

Make some homemade halloween treats with the kids this year with this charming no-bake recipe from Mom On Timeout.

I took my go-to mint pattie recipe and with the help of some pretzels and some taffy, made these adorable little pumpkins. It had occurred to me that the lines created when pressing the patties with the tines of the fork would resemble the lines found on an actual pumpkin. I had originally thought I would just pinch the patty together to get a more realistic pumpkin shape but when I went to slide in the pretzel stick “stem”, the most amazing thing happened – the perfect pumpkin shape!

I bet you could make lots of other halloween-themed candies with this spooky recipe too!
