Pumpkin Candy



  • 1 cup pumpkin

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

  3. Using about 2 teaspoons of the mixture, shape into a ball or oblong shape.
  4. Continue until all the mixture is used.
  5. Roll the balls in the remaining 1/2 cup of coconut to coat.
  6. Cover and store the candy in the refrigerator.

Yield: about 2 1/2 dozen pieces
