  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar to roll balls in
  • 18 pretzels broken in half for stems
  • 10 green candies - Starburst Laffy Taffy, etc.


  • Combine butter and corn syrup together in a small bowl.

  • Stir in an additional cup of powdered sugar.
  • Turn bowl onto a cutting board sprinkled with last cup of powdered sugar.
  • Knead the mixture until sugar is absorbed and is completely smooth.
  • Shape into 1 inch balls and roll in granulated sugar.
  • Flatten gently with a fork.
  • Gently press one half of a pretzel into the top of the pumpkin using a second pretzel to stabilize. Repeat for all candies.
