Pumpkin Cake Pops

This post originally published on a previously-owned blog and was imported here to simplify my life. My family eats much healthier than this nowadays, but I include this post for memories and history. I hope you enjoy the content!

Last week inspired me…or I gave in to all my friends wanting more.  Probably both!

Bakerella’s pumpkin cake pops called for green tic-tacs.  Though she is the expert and there’s no way I could come up with even a fraction of her terrific ideas, I thought maybe I could find a better pumpkin stem that didn’t taste like spearmint…Turns out, my husband did!  We were on the hunt and our second candy store visit produced this idea:

They even have the “bumpier” look of a pumpkin stem.  All you need is green licorice (Apple! Another great fall flavor!):

 

I brought several dozen Cake Pops to a party Saturday night, but forgot to take photos of all the happy Cake Pop eaters.  Trust me, there were a lot of them.  However, I saved a basketful for some more friends and snapped these pictures last night:

Mmm cake pops with coffee.  Unbelievable.

These do take quite a long time to make, but the smiles they produce are so worth it.  Plus, I couldn’t stop eating them myself…

  2. Wow! I like your idea too! I was looking for anything green that a 2-3yr old could eat and the Mike & Ike's I saw first, and they are only a dollar at Walmart! Did you add anything to your Candy Melts, or did you even use Candy Melts? That was the first time I used Candy Melts, not almond bark and I hated it! I added shortening to thin it and the CM just weren't workable for me, IDK what I did…
