Jack O’ Lantern Cake Pops

This order is for a Halloween party tonight. I created these Jack O’ Lantern cake pops for a festive Halloween look. I used chocolate cake and chocolate frosting. After making the cake balls I dipped them in orange chocolate. The orange chocolate is a vanilla flavor. Immediately, after dipping them I placed a green tic tack on the top for the stem of the pumpkin.

Once the candy shell dries I melted dark chocolate and put it in a disposable piping bag. I then piped on the scary Jack O’ Lantern faces. This combination is supper yummy. I hope they like it at the party!

I will also be making another batch of Halloween cake pops this weekend so I will be sure to post them.

Pumpkin Seeds

Well today we started the process of carving our pumpkin. (I hope it lasts until Halloween) After I washed the outside of the pumpkin we cut open the top. We pulled out all the seeds and the rest of the inside of the pumpkin. I rinsed the seeds in water and then strained them through colander and rinsed again. After this I laid them out on a greased baking sheet. I baked them on 300 degrees for about 15 minutes. Then I took them out.

Next, I mixed 1/2 the seeds with olive oil and ground sea salt. I also wanted a sweet option so I mixed the other 1/2  with vegetable oil, cinnamon, and sugar. Then I returned them to the oven where I baked them another 15 minutes.

They came out great. This is a fun fall snack and activity for you to do when carving your pumpkin.
