Pumpkin Pie Cups- White chocolate shells filled with pumpkin pie candy filling. A must-make this Thanksgiving!

Some recipes are just too simple and delicious to keep to myself. Truly I would like to have the super-secret recipe for these and be a Thanksgiving rock star but I just love you all too much to keep quiet. When I saw these pumpkin pie candy cups last year I was smitten. I made them three times and forced everyone I knew to try one. {I apologize if you know me and I didn’t happen to shove one in your face last year. Come over this week and we’ll fix that.}  I haven’t met a single person who didn’t like them! Quick and easy- you’ll be the Thanksgiving rock star too if you bring these to the table Thursday afternoon.

Pumpkin Pie Cups- White chocolate shells filled with pumpkin pie candy filling. A must-make this Thanksgiving!

Pumpkin Pie Candy Cups Recipe

Like a Resees peanut butter cup- but with pumpkin pie filling


  • 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).
  • Using a small spoon or squirt bottle pour a small amount of chocolate into each of 24 liners or a silicone mold. I used a pumpkin-shaped silicone mold, but you can use mini foil liners just as easily. Place in the refrigerator to set up.
  • Combine the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Place a small amount into each of the liners; make sure the filling does not exceed the top.
  • Reheat your white chocolate if necessary and pour on top and along the sides if the liners/mold.
  • Chill for at least 20 minutes.

    My favorite part is that they're shaped like pumpkins 🙂 Super cute. I'll have to make these next year (seeing as our Thanksgiving already happened)

    What kind of white chocolate did you use? Where can I find that sweet pumpkin mold? Love these! Thanks. 🙂

    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!! 🙂

    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!

    These are adorable…and very unique! I wish I had time to make them on Thanksgiving morning, since I'm not hosting this year. I'm taking one dish to a family dinner, but can't make it until I get to Houston. Maybe I'll have to make these just for me next weekend…yeah, that could work! Pinning…

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.

    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!
