Pumpkin HiFi Buddy Bars—Prototype 1:

Are you ready for some football ("American football" to many of those who live outside the USA)? While this sport is a major part of the autumn season, pumpkins are largely associated with this time of year as well, and pumpkin pie, in particular, is a popular treat (especially around November). Here's a HiFi Buddy version!

4.5 oz. pumpkin butter (available at Trader Joe's)
1/3 cup granulated sugar
16 oz. whipped lowfat cottage cheese
(fully blend the above three ingredients first before adding the Bran Buds)
8.8 oz. Bran Buds, ground up
(blend quickly into the above mixture)

6 oz. melted, white chocolate
1.5 oz. pumpkin butter

Spread the crust mixture into an 8" x 8" pan, then add the filling on top, and chill until firm.

Pumpkin HiFi Buddy Bars—Prototype 1

Another terrific hit! Looks like this one became Jude's new favorite (even ahead of the lemon ones). In fact, she had been looking forward to these for a long time (perhaps since about a whole year ago, assuming that she likely suggested a pumpkin flavor back then). Furthermore, these bars went very quickly when I brought them to the Sports Page.
Buddy Balls variation:

Simply combine all of the Crust and all of the Filling ingredients of the Pumpkin HiFi Buddy Bars recipe into a single mixture. Then form this into balls, about 1 1/2 inches in diameter, and chill for at least an hour.
