  1. In a large bowl combine peanut butter, melted butter, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla mix until fully combined with your stand up mixer or hand mixer.
  2. Add several drops of the red and yellow food coloring and mix until you get the orange color you want.
  3. Add the powdered sugar and mix until fully combined.
  4. Scoop out a heaping tablespoon of the peanut butter mixture and form into a ball. (I use my cookie scoop.)
  5. Using a toothpick create the dents in the pumpkins.
  6. Inserts a piece of the gluten-free pretzel in the center to be the pumpkin's stem.
  7. Place on parchment lined cookie sheet, either refrigerate or freeze. (I prefer them to be frozen.)
  8. Enjoy!

Mama says, "Check all of your labels!"
