What do you get when you combine our classic peanut butter cookie with Halloween shapes and fun festive frosting? A truly irresistible treat! Let the kids help decorate them, too. You'll all delight in the expressions on the sweet little pumpkin faces. But don't stop there! Let the pumpkin play continue with these simple ideas:

Make a pitcher of jolly Jack-O-Lantern Juice. Cut triangles and a grin out of black electrical or craft tape and affix it to the pitcher. Fill with orange juice or fruit punch and serve.

Turn oranges into Jack-O-Lantern Fruit Cups. For each cup, remove a small slice from the bottom of an orange so that it will stand upright. Use a small sharp knife to create a simple Jack-O-Lantern face (no need to cut all the way through, the white pith will create contrast). Cut about 1-inch off the top and carefully scoop out the flesh. Fill with chopped fruit and serve.

For easy Jack-O-Lantern Cupcakes, spread your favorite cupcakes with orange-tinted frosting. Create a face with pieces of black licorice or chocolate chips. A small green gumdrop makes a sweet stem
