easy peasy pumpkin treats

the greatest illusion there is for a chef is spending very little time and energy on a project that makes you look like you slaved away all day. This is also a great trick for those who don’t have the time or patience for the homemade recipes. Last month was my friend Richard’s birthday, and with the holiday festivities, I didn’t have time to start from scratch. So I improvised… inspired by none other than the pumpkin, I picked up a box of Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Muffin Mix. I knew this would be a fool proof method, and I could trick them out with some homemade frosting and surprise peanut butter cups inside. *Note: instead of buying Reese’s, I went with TJ’s mini milk chocolate peanut butter cups. They are so much better for baking and not as bad for you either!
