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
Booo!

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.
