Fall is here! Fall is here! Fall is here!!!!! What better way to celebrate fall than with some delicious fall treats!?!?!
This week, I made two simple treats that were absolutely delicious: Cinnamon coated pumpkin seeds & chocolate/peanut butter pretzels!!
Let’s begin with the Cinnamon Coated Pumpkin Seeds:
It all started when my roommate and I wanted to carve a pumpkin…. We went to Whole Foods and bought a giant pumpkin, once we started to carve it – we realized that there were so many pumpkin seeds that were going to waste, so we decided to save the pumpkin seeds and look up a simple recipe for them.
Preheat the oven to 400. In the meantime, dry the seeds on paper towel and then place them on a butter-coated pan. Sprinkle the cinnamon powder on them and once the oven is ready – you place them inside.
Chocolate/Peanut Butter Pretzels
You are going to need a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips, a cup of peanut butter, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter powder and a cup of confectioner’s sugar.
Get the bag of chocolate chips and the cup of peanut butter and add them to a bowl
Place in the microwave for 1:30 min or until the chocolate chips fully melt. Once melted, mix the peanut butter and melted chocolate together. Also, add the peanut butter powder to make it a little bit denser.
If you want, you can add other things to it – we added cheerios!
Once it is all mixed together, place everything in a large Ziploc bag and add the confectioners sugar to it.
Overall Prep Time: 30 min
Overall Cost: $15-20
