Pumpkin Poppers

I found this delicious fall recipe on Pinterest, and ended up making them this weekend for a church picnic.  They were divine and were such a hit!  To me, they taste like pumpkin donut holes - covered in cinnamon sugar.  And can you really beat that?  I don't think so :)

So take it from me, make these immediately.  Share with friends.  Or make a cup of coffee, watch HGTV, and eat them all by yourself.  We won't tell. 
Either way, you won't regret making them - and they might just change your life.
