5 cups popped popcorn
1 cup candy corn
1 cup salted peanuts
½ cup butter
3 cups miniature marshmallows
4 drops red food coloring
3 drops yellow food coloring
4 sticks of licorice cut into thirds

Grease muffin pan and set aside. Place popcorn, candy corn, and peanuts in large bowl and set aside.
Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in marshmallows, red and yellow food coloring adjusting color to nice shade of orange. When marshmallows are completely melted, pour over popcorn and stir to evenly distribute the candy, nuts and marshmallow.
Use a greased spoon to fill the muffin cups. Insert a piece of licorice to act as the stem and mold the popcorn around it. Let stand until firm, about 15 minutes and pull the pumpkins out by the stems and admire your pumpkin patch.
