Pumpkin Poppers

So things in the Sprinkles Household have been a bit hectic lately with the MATM2 contest (I didn't win, but I'm okay.) and my work with Adler Planetarium on a new curriculum project, so Mr. Sprinkles has been a bit neglected in the baked goods department.  I decided to make that up to him with some pumpkin poppers which are a bit like little pumpkin doughnut holes and very tasty for this chilly fall weather.  I stumbled upon the recipe from Domestically Speaking while indulging my new addiction, Pinterest. Enjoy!

Recipe @ Pumpkin Poppers by Domestically Speaking

My observations/suggestions/tips:

  • The recipe makes about 30 poppers
  • Dip the poppers into the butter and cinnamon sugar mixture quickly!  Don't worry about trying to coat every bit of the popper or let it sit in there too long or they get sickeningly sweet.
  • Domestically speaking suggests coating only half of the popper to avoid them being too sweet and I may try that next time although the hubby is a serious sugar fiend.
