Pumpkin Nut Butter Cups

Enjoy this pumpkin twist on the classic peanut butter cup. This will definitely be a part of my end of October candy fix. Make sure your pumpkin seeds are salted for a sweet and salty affair you won't get enough of. You could also layer this in a loaf pan using parchment paper on the bottom and cut into strips.
