Pumpkin Pie Candy Cups
Pumpkin Pie Candy Cups- White chocolate shells filled with pumpkin pie candy filling. A must-make this Thanksgiving!
Some recipes are just too delicious and straightforward to keep to myself. Honestly, I would like to have the super-secret recipe for these and be a Thanksgiving rock star, but I love you all too much to keep quiet.
I was smitten the moment I saw these candies for the first time. Since then, we have not met a single person who didn’t like them! They are a staple at our Thanksgiving dessert table.
How to make Pumpkin Pie Candy Cups
You can use mini muffin paper liners or full-size cupcake liners. I also like to use this mini pumpkin-shaped silicone mold or mini muffin silicone molds.
Using a spoon or food-safe squeeze bottle, place down a white chocolate layer. You will want to spread some of the chocolate up the sides of the silicone molds or liners. Let harden.
Prepare the filling and drop small portions into the candy wells. Top with white chocolate.
How should these be stored?
Since these candy cups contain unbaked pumpkin puree, you should keep these chilled in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Bring to room temperature or just until the chocolate is not cold any longer (about 20-30 minutes).
Pumpkin Pie Candy Cups can sit out on a serving tray for 2-3 hours.
Pumpkin Pie Candy Cups Recipe
- 2 cups white chocolate, melted
- 2 oz cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
- MELT the chocolate in the microwave or double boiler until pourable (add 1 Tbs of shortening if needed to make it smooth and spreadable).
- POUR a small amount of chocolate into each of 24 liners or a silicone mold using a small spoon or squirt bottle. I used a pumpkin-shaped silicone mold, but you can use mini foil liners just as easily.
- CHILL for at least 20 minutes
- MIX cream cheese, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract, powdered sugar, and graham cracker crumbs. Place a small amount into each of the liners; make sure the filling does not exceed the top.
- DROP a small amount (approximately 1 teaspoon) into each of the chocolate-covered liners; make sure the filling does not exceed the top.
- REHEAT your white chocolate if necessary and POUR on top and along the sides of the liners/mold.
- CHILL for at least 20 minutes and serve.

I want to make these all year around!
I just love finding unique recipes and thinking “Wow! What a great idea!” I am making these tonight for my son and my brother. They are pumpkin pie lovers and Reese’s peanut butter cup lovers and this looks like a great compromise between the two! Thanks so much for this!
Our family loves them at Thanksgiving. They are sweet little bites… but you are right that they are unique and fun!

Hi Isha, thanks for commenting. Of course I would like to address this issue- what do you mean it is hard to read anything? What browser are you using? Just trying to troubleshoot here…
It is super hard to read anything in this blog
If you let me know where you live, I will allow you to shove one in my face. Happy Belated Birthday, sorry I missed it, been running like crazy the last couple of days. You have no idea how much you will like that label maker. It's changed my life, lol. Hoping you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Yay Katrina! I always love when you post something new! Thanksgiving is at my mother-in-laws house and she told me not to bring anything-boo. But maybe she won't mind too much if I show up with these! Might have to give them a try!

My Mother-In-Law gave me some white chocolate from a local bakery bulk store. I normally use Wilton or Make-n-Mold. I've also heard that Candy Quick is good too but I haven't found it yet. I'm pretty sure I bought the pumpkin silicone mold at Jo-Ann's craft store a few years ago. I know you will enjoy them!! 🙂
What kind of white chocolate did you use? Where can I find that sweet pumpkin mold? Love these! Thanks. 🙂
Love these – so cute! I love white chocolate lately, these would disappear very quickly around me!
