Nutella Pumpkin Bites


Before you know it, Halloween will be here, Yikes! Are you ready?  Have you bought your Trick or Treat candy, are the costumes ready? Or are you one those last minute procrastinators? There will be a lot of Halloween parties this weekend, because Halloween falls on a Thursday this year, so you have to be ready early.


I must admit that when my kids were little, Halloween, was not my strong suit, when it came to costumes.  I didn't sew, so I had to rely on odds and ends or store bought costumes.  Thank goodness, elaborate costumes weren't in vogue, back in the day.  It was always cold, or rainy, or both, so you were more concerned about keeping the kids warm, than their costumes.  Also, it seems like one of my kids was always sick on Halloween. One of my favorite memories from Halloween, was to see them dumping out their stash of Halloween candy on the floor, and swapping for their favorites.  That was before, parents had to check the candy for dangerous or tampered candy.  My children are grown adults, now.


 Nutella Pumpkin Bites are the perfect Halloween treat, if you need a last minute idea for a party.  They only have 4, ingredients; Nutella, flour, one egg, and pumpkin, and they bake in 12 minutes.  These would be good to have your kids help you make, so easy and so good. They are full of Nutella and pumpkin flavor.  You can mix in the pumpkin or swirl it in. I started swirling it in and over swirled  over swirled the pumpkin. I added an orange glaze and M & M for the pumpkin look, but decorate anyway you want.  These would be perfectly fine with a sprinkle of powdered sugar, as well.


Nutella Pumpkin BitesAdapted from Liv Life

1/2 cup Nutella
1 egg
5 Tbs all-purpose flour
1/2 c. pumpkin puree
Preheat oven to 350º.  Lightly spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl mix the Nutella and egg together until smooth. Add the flour and mix until smooth. 
 
Spoon batter into the mini muffin tin, filling about 2/3 full. Spoon about 1 tsp pumpkin puree on top of each muffin cup, and lightly swirl.  Place the tin into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes.

Remove from oven and dust with powdered sugar if desired, or glaze, when cooled.

Glaze
 1 c. powdered sugar
Orange gel food coloring
1-2 Tbsp milk
MM's for garnish

Place powdered sugar in bowl.  Add very small amounts of gel food coloring, until desired color.  Add milk until desired consistency.  Spoon over cooled bites.  Garnish with MM's
