Pumpkinpalooza continues… YESSSS!

I’m about to tell you a little somethin’… It’s rather moving. Not really.

Judging by a few scans of other people’s pantries, I can almost guarantee that a regular, rather normal household, buys a can or two of pumpkin puree. Right? Also, and because I was nosy and kept on scanning, a normal household buys one or two bags of chocolate chips at a time, if that.

Wanna know how MANY I buy at a time?
You guys… I have about 6 or 7 bags of chocolate chips in the pantry, a couple of bags in one of my cupboards and a few more bags in a drawer.
If there’s a sale on chocolate chips, I’m not buying 3 or 4 bags… No, no, no (shakin’ my head)… I am buying at least 12, if not 15. Remember, I cook and bake for a living. And hobby-ing(?).

Can you guess how many cans of pumpkin I have? I couldn’t tell you. I’m just going to say a lot.  I also have jars upon jars of Peanut Butter. Again, if it’s on sale, I’m stocking up! I just want to make sure that when an idea clicks, or when I feel inspired, all my needed ingredients will be within arm’s reach.

One of my favorite fast and easy snacks to make are these Peanut Butter Cups. They come together in a snap and they are awesome! I didn’t grow up on the chocolate/peanut butter snack thingamajig. In fact, I didn’t even like PB until I went to college. It was then that I started to warm up to it and by the end of my 4th year, I was scooping it from the jar and straight into my trap, with my bare hands. Come to think of it, I still do that… when noone is watching.

After making a delicious Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dip for my favorite girl, Kim, the blogger behind A Night Owl Blog, I decided to whip up something similar and stuff it into these Chocolate Cups!

ENJOY!
