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.

becca – thanks

Baking Chamber – Wow. A big fave.

angelabarton – I wonder if your dough is too moist. Try adding a little less frosting next time.
Then after they are rolled, dip the stick in some coating and stick in ball, keeping the sticks in the air. They need to be inserted in straight and not at an angle. Then put in the freezer for a few minutes to firm up. Take one out at a time so the others remain firm and dip in your coating. You can also try holding the bowl at an angle and rolling the sides in the coating and then the top. Gently Move the pop from side to side until the coating slides around the bottom side of the pop. If it does not make it all the way down try tapping it slightly to help make it smooth dowm. You can also use a toothpick to direct the coating. It needs to completely surround the base of the stick for support.

Jolette – YAY!

Michelle – Thank you

Katie – Thanks

Gina – Good call.

Alison – Wow. Thanks for the love.

mommaof4wife2r – Hope you make some.

tiaraco – thanks for the shoutout.

Suburban Zombie – Thank you!!!

Stacey – Good, it's working.

Jessica – I wish I knew.

Brindi – Thanks. I like happy!

Those look amazing, I am definitely gonna try some of them out for Halloween.

I’ve never ever tried red velvet cake though. The idea of a red cake sort of scares me… A bit. O.o

Oh. And I second (more like 30rd?) the book idea. -nods-

Any ideas??

Paul and Dennise said...

Fabulous! Your creativity is endless! I just had to make these too…however, I had a problem with the cake/icing mixture. It was dry, and I had added the whole can of icing. I did go to the Martha site, and noted that her instructions tell you to cut around the perimeter of the cake abut 1/2″. This could be causing my problem. Also, I am not having a lot of success with dipping the cakes into the candy coating…is there a way to thin out the bark without ruining the white chocolate? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Sara said...

These are fantastic! I read through the above comments, and I have a few questions that I don’t think have been asked yet:
First, how do you serve them? Do you stick them in something so they’re standing up, or do you put them in a glass, or…? And similarly, if you stick them in the freezer before doing the melted chocolate, how do you keep them upright?

Thanks! I’m looking forward to trying these for Halloween! :)

October 15, 2008 12:59 PM
Bakerella said...

Cosmo – thanks!

malin – what?! You’ll love red velvet cake!

Anonymous – you may have gotten water in your chocolate.

Paul and Dennise – the main reason to remove the edges from that cake was because they were hard when baked. As far as the chocolate, you can use a few drops of oil to thin it out.

Jess and Jen – It does make things easier!

Cakespy – Oh, I did! I did!

barbichounette – merci!

awoz – thank you!

Sara – in a styrofoam block or in a dish filled with sugar.

when I put them in the freezer, if they are round, I insert the sticks and place them on a tray upside down. For the cake pops, they are only in the freezer to firm up. Once the stick is inserted, they don’t need to go back in

Bakerella Please HELP, I have made your cake pops several times now always a hit. Today I was making pumpkins, and they looked great but as they where drying they were cracking!!! What am I doing wrong, I had chilled the cake pops before coating but I always do that
Can you tell me what to do

Here’s a link to some chocolate basics:

Could you have gotten any water/moisture in your chocolate?

This has happened to me. I notice it with the round cake pops. It doesn’t happen with the cupcake pops for some reason. It makes me think that it could be related to the size / amount of coating on the ball … weight of it. I need to experiment more to narrow the cause, but check this out.. It may answer some ?s.

I just made halloween Cupcake Bites with your recipe! They are so cute, it was so much fun and a lot easier than I thought it would be. Pictures are on my blog.
Thanks for the recipe Bakerella!!

I tried to make the halloween cake pops and ran into a few problems. Some of the chocolate crystalized, the chocolate wouldn't thin enough and I had to "spread" it on the pops, my food markers wouldn't work on the chocolate so I had to "paint" the chocolate on to make some of the face features. But all in all, I'm happy with how it all came out. Click here to see a picture Bakerella, all your stuff looks awesome and you make everything look so easy! Please write a book so we can all learn your tricks!
