To make these cute Jack-o-Lantern faces, I used the Wilton Sugar Sheets and a fun paper punch.
Yes, the face was all in pieces, so it was a bit tedious, but I thought the end result was better than me hand piping it.
I used a toothpick to add a dot of candy and then adhered the cut out using tweezers to pick up the tiny piece and place it on the pop.
These are an easy way to make some cute Jack-o-Lantern Cake Pops. You can take it up a notch by adding some indentation on the pop with a stick prior to dipping to get the shape. Then add a chocolate chip or pretzel bit as a stem and some green shoestring licorice for a stem like THIS.
Little Debbie Pumpkin Delights Pops
by Pint Sized Baker
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Ingredients (12 lollipops)
Little Debbie Pumpkin Delights Cookies
Orange Candy Melts
Lollipop Sticks or Straws (I used Paper Straws)
Wilton Sugar Sheets (Black)
Jack-o-lantern Paper Punch
Cake Pop Stand (By KC Bakes)
Unwrap Cookies and pulse in Food Processor until they are a fine crumble.
They will look “loose” but when you press together they will hold the shape. There is no need to add any extra frosting or binder.
Use a Cookie Scoop to measure out 12 pops and form into balls.
Place in fridge for 10 minutes.
Melt Orange Candy Melts in a glass or ceramic bowl for 30 second intervals at 70% power in the microwave. Stir between intervals until smooth. Do not allow the candy to get too hot.
Dip 1/4 inch of a lollipop stick (or straw) into the candy and then insert half way into the cookie pop.
Use your KC Bakes stand to hold the pops upright and keep the round shape.
Once all the pops are on sticks, start with the first pop and dip straight down and back up again coating the entire pop. Tap the stick to allow excess candy to drip off. Stand back up in stand.
Punch out 12 Jack-o-Lantern faces using you hole punch and Sugar Sheets.
Place a dot of candy on the pop with a toothpick and add the face details. I used tweezers to pick up the small pieces.
I stumbled on to this while searching for little pumpkin cake pops for my niece's baby shower. There are 100 people coming so I needed something simple that I can do THIS WEEKEND! I can't wait to surprise her with a beautiful pumpkin patch. I am going to try the indentions and stems. You are now on my favorites. Thanks so much for sharing!

Wow. You seriously added each tiny piece of the face one at a time after punching each out one at a time? You are amazing. And... you are right... the pumpkins look FANTASTIC because of it!!!
