For Halloween, I've been experimenting with a bunch of new pumpkin recipes. Pumpkin butter is one of my fall favorites, so one morning after making my first batch of the season, I took a heaping spoonful and dolloped it on top of a warm slice of just-out-of-the-toaster crusty deliciousness. With the back of the spoon I quickly fashioned the pumpkin butter into a pumpkin shape, which was enough to get my kids excited.

You can easily substitute raisins for the chocolate, but what's Halloween without some sweets?
