Trick or Treats

Spooky Sweets

Hope you scream over these Halloween Cake Pops. (Frankensteins, spiders and werewolves, oh my!) These spooky sweets are sure to get you in the spirit.

All of the cake pops were hand-shaped and use the following sweet supplies:

Edible ink pens
Lollipop sticks
Chocolate candy melts (werewolves)
White candy melts (mummies, ghosts, skulls)
White candy melts tinted black with candy color
Orange candy melts (pumpkins)
Green candy melts (Witches, Frankensteins)
Purple candy melts (Witches, Frankensteins, Monsters, Bats)
Black licorice wheels (spider legs and witch hair)
Chocolate morsels (kitty ears)
Oreos (witch hats)
Hershey Kisses (witch hats)
Mini m&m’s (Frankenstein noses)
Tic tacs (Witch nose and pumpkin stem)various sprinkles
Paramount crystals (used to thin some of the candy melts)
Various shaped sprinkles for face details.
Squeeze bottles (for candy coating)
Candy writers
toothpicks (helpful in applying small amounts of coating to act as the glue)
plastic bowls

Half of them were red velvet cake and cream cheese frosting inside and the other half were pumpkin cake and cream cheese frosting. The pumpkin was okay, but I liked the red velvet taste better. Something about the pumpkin and candy coating together didn’t float my boat. Maybe I should just do a book for you guys… then I could have all my how-tos in one place. Now, without further ado, here are my Halloween Cupcake Pops:

Pumpkin Pops
Jolly jack o’ lanterns

Mummy Cake Pops
Mouthless mummies

Werewolf Cake pops
Werewolves you can sink your teeth into. (These might just be my faves!)

Frankenstein Cake Pops
Frankensteins that I forgot to add the bolts onto.

Skull Cake Pops
Scary Skulls

Black Cat Cake Pops
Black Cats. Eat them if they cross your path this Halloween!

Bat Cake Pops
Bats don’t have to be black, but I do think these need some fangs.

Witch Cake Pops
Which witch? Smiling or angry?

Ghost Cake Pops

Purple Monster Cake Pops
One-eyed purple people eaters! (and some two-eyed ones too.)

Spider Cake Pops
Black licorice leg spiders

And finally, a couple of horror movie cake pops.

Horror Movie Pops

Scream!!!! It’s Jason!

Hope you guys all have a frightfully fun Halloween!

Oh yeah, here are some Halloween cupcakes that I did last year if you’re interested.

Absolutely Adorable! My two favorites are the skulls and the purple people eaters (they’re almost too cute to eat!)

I have finally gotten up the nerve to try to make these. I’m going for the little cupcake truffle like things instead of the pops. Wish me luck!

So cute! I think I love all of them! You really should do a book! I know I’d buy it!

I had JUST finished my list of things to buy to make jack-o’-lantern cupcake pops, when I clicked on your blog and lo and behold…OF COURSE you beat me to it, and WAY BEYOND!!! I love the witch! You’re too much!!! :) You must have had a very busy evening!

Little cake pops? Brilliant.

It’s the first time I’ve ever heard of it. A mouthful of cakey goodness… I’m in love!

You’re so talented, and I would definitely buy your book too. x

Oh my goodness! I love them! I was so excited to make orange and brown cupcake pops for Halloween, but now those seems so boring after seeing you cute and oh-so-creative ones!

Sarah, Jesse, and Isaac said...

These are just too cute! You are my inspiration to do fun treats for Halloween. I would love for you to do a book – I always get the urge to make goodies once I check out your blog. The one with the chocolate chip cookie pie? I made it the next day…

October 6, 2008 04:27 AM
Anthonette said...

These are soooooo fun! I look forward to seeing your new creations. They are all fantastic. I cracked up when I saw your movie horror guys.

October 6, 2008 04:44 AM
angelabarton said...

LOVE the halloween theme! I might make these for my daughters halloween party at school! What did you use for the tops of the pumpkins to make them green? Is that the top of the lollipop stick pushed through and colored or dipped in Chocolate, or something else added. ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE!!! You should make a book with all your neat ideas and recipes!!! (If you haven’t already!)

Wow the attention to detail is amazing! I actually dressed up as a one eyed one horned flying purple people eater when I was about 9 years old. My mom was kind enough to help me make the costume- because as you can guess, we couldn’t locate one in a store!

October 6, 2008 05:52 AM

Please make a book! I can’t get enough of your ideas! I am going to try the Halloween cake pops later this week….wish me luck.

Tamana said...

These are so adorable!!

I have tried making your cakepops twice before and I can never get the chocolate coating right. I think my chocolate doesn’t melt enough and becomes a big mess when dry (top running down the sides). Also it looks nothing like a cupcake.

I have done the double boiler method and microwave. I use the Wilton candy melts.

What am I doing wrong??

Thanks! :-)

Hayley said...

These are so cute! My brother’s birthday is on halloween, he’ll be 18 so I should make him so of these!

I agree with gingela5 though, you should do a book, you’re so creative!

Amazing! I was going to say Frankenstein was my favorite, then as I kept scrolling to see each one, they are all too cute to pick a favorite. Love the witches and their chocolate hats. Such talent! I love that each one is unique, too.

You’ve OUT DONE yourself! These are the cutest CAKEBITES I’ve seen you make so far! Well, they’re ALL cute but these one’s are pretty AWESOME! If you gave me one, I don’t think I could eat it. I’d want to save it and look at it!

Congratulations! I love them ALL! The pictures are awesome too!

Misty said...

Those are awesome. I would definitely buy your book. I have a question for you. I want to make these for a Halloween party I will be having for my kids. Can you only use red velvet cake and cream cheese icing?

candesintx said...

couldn’t wait to see what you’d do for Halloween. Love ’em. I think I’m going to make eyeballs.

BTW Tamara – it could be the brand of melts you are using. I have no luck w/ Wilton candy melts.

Try Merkens candy melts.

I just KNEW you were going to make some fun cake pops for Halloween! I have been waiting to buy supplies until you posted them. Thanks for doing so a few weeks in advance of Halloween. That way I’ll have time to mess up a few batches while trying to figure out how to make them look like that, although they’ll never be as cute as yours!

You should SO do a book. It would sell like crazy. A friend of mine just made the dogs for her daughter’s birthday – EVERYONE raved. The book, much like your site/talent, would be a HIT!

Publish?? You should do a book – even if you only use the online blog content from old postings! Check out the ‘I have something to publish’ at the bottom of this page on Amazon… maybe it’s relevant? link to

These are just the coolest. Times like this I do get that little “green monster” because my kids are on special diets (1 is gluten/casein free and the other is dairy-free). I would love to give them something like this!!!

I have made the “cupcake” balls and they always get rave reviews!
I have even have people offer to pay me and make them for their party!!! I havent committed to it;) I do have a full time job outside the home too!
I now have to bring them to every party-by request.
Thanks for all your tips, recipes, and creativity!

I love your little cupcake pops and attempted them this weekend, however mine where a flop! What is the secret? I think my cake was too moist because they tasted as if the cake had never been baked… HELP!!!

Hibler House said...

I was thinking of making some of your pops for a Halloween party and I love the ones you put together! Way cute! I was thinking of doing red velvet and white coating, like eyeballs or something. How did you make the eye on your one eyed purple monster? Could you give me a hint? And definitely think about a book, I love all your pops you make and it would be awesome to have a book to reference in my kitchen, so I don’t have to run upstairs every time. Plus, we would all buy it and you would be a millionaire. Thanks!

October 6, 2008 09:34 PM
Glenda said...

Well if these aren’t the cutest things I’ve ever seen. You are so talented. They are all too cute, I can’t pick a favorite. I think I will have to make the jack o lanterns for Halloween.

October 6, 2008 10:20 PM
Anonymous said...

YES! You totally should make a book on your cake pops! I would buy it in an instant. It would be so helpful to have the directions in print so im not running from my archived posts!
I made my first attempt at cake balls this weekend. I made them about twice the size without a stick and they were a hit.
Also — You said the pumpkin didnt mesh well with the candy.. perhaps a chocolate coating would be good! I was thinking about that this weekend :)

Ok, I tried…I really did try to re create these (this is my 2nd time) I don’t know what i”m doing wrong, after I chilled the “dough” and rolled into balls I put a lollipop stick inside I tried to dip it into the chocolate and the lollipop stick fell out. I let the chocolate cool a little bit, I put the “dough” into the freezer with the lollipop stick hoping it would stay together and they sill fell apart! HELP! What am I doing wrong, can you give me any advice, I want to try them again!
