Pumpkin Shaped Bread Bowls and Rolls

These are super easy to make and add lots of excitement to any soup. My kids must eat a bowl of potato soup before trick or treating and putting it in a bread bowl shaped and colored to look like a pumpkin adds enough fun that they eat it up.

First to color your dough, just add red and yellow food coloring to your water before you add it to your dry ingredients.

Then shape the dough into 6 medium size balls with square stems on top.

Paint pumpkins with more food coloring, I used a kids watercolor brush.

I also cut little slits along the sides of the pumpkin to add texture and depth.

Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes.

Cool for 10 minutes and then cut the top off.

Dig out the inside of the bowl.

Fill with your favorite soup and enjoy! I really like potato soup, or white chicken chili.
