I would like to wish everyone a happy and safe Halloween!
I made a bunch of pops for Halloween gifts.
We’ve got Witch’s Cauldron’s!
To make these, dip the pop in black candy melts and place down on wax paper. When dry, dip the flat side in some green candy melts and add the Bonez candy. Allow to dry upright.
Use orange candy melts to create the fire around the stick. Then add a touch of Red Cake Mate Gel with toothpick.

We’ve got Ghosts!
These cake pops were pre-shaped into a pear-ish shape. Dip into white candy melts. Just as the candy is firming up (15 to 20 seconds) place a finger at the base and “pull” down strands of candy to give it this stringy look. Add facial features with some black candy melts or a black food writers pen.
Creepy, Crawly Spiders!
Dip these critters into black candy melts and add black licorice legs and eye balls. My Little Cup helped me add the legs to these guys. She also insisted that they were “Happy Spiders” because there were getting candy! The red is the Cake Mate Red Gel again.
Dip cake pops into orange candy melts and place down on wax paper to dry. Dip the flat side into white candy melts and dip into fun colored sprinkles or colored chips. Add some black licorice as the handle and decorate a jack-o-lantern face with black candy melts.
Eye Ball Martini, anyone?
I made these eye balls and my daughter just happened to have watched Shrek earlier in the day, so I made an eye ball Martini just for Shrek!
These were dipped in white candy melts and placed upright to dry. I added the dark green candy wafer to a few, then added the lighter green candy melts to the others. Add some iris establishments with black and white candy and add the red veins with the Red Cake Mate gel.
Again, my Little Cup was watching Monsters Vs. Aliens and the Mutant Pumpkins short and the Jack-o-Lanterns came to life to take over and eat all the Halloween Candy. Their featured glowed blue/green in the show and looked pretty fierce. I could not reproduce the effect, so this is what ya get!
With you cake balls, take a stick and make 5 indention’s around the ball and give it a little squish on the top to widen it. Dip into orange candy melts and add a pretzel stick top for the stem. Add green features and enjoy!
Happy, Happy Halloween!
