My friend came over this past weekend we made some cake pops. I love cake pops, let me tell ya.
We made lots of eyeball cake pops, and that night the kids and I took a bouquet of “eyepops” over to a neighbors house. So fun. My kids Loved hiding around the corner, then jumping out and yelling surprise! if you want to see a photo of the bouquet, jump on over to my Facebook page! Be sure to ‘like’ my page while you’re there!
Well, after we made all those eyeballs, I couldn’t stop. I found some awesome little cookie cutters and I could only envision them as cake pops! Instead of rolling only balls, I used the cookie cutters to get the different shapes.
and since I love them all, I’m going to feature each one in a picture :)

They made my whole kitchen look halloween-y. I wish I could just leave them up for the rest of the month for decorations!! but..… they taste too good for that to be an option.
What I used:
Black - Wilton only sells them this time of year, so I suggest buying a bag or 2 if you see them! I found mine at Michaels. Walmart also carries them.
Spooky Green – also a Halloween exclusive color
Orange – I started with orange, then added both a little red and orange candy dyes to get it this color. Make sure they are candy dyes that are oil based before adding it to your chocolate!
After I dipped each pop in the main color, I let them harden completely before adding details. The details are all candy melts that were melted in a disposable piping bag.
For the candy corn, I used the hat cutter, then just cut off the edges. Then I dipped it 3 separate times to get the color layering.
Oh, and I added a little shimmer dust to the witch’s cauldron brew.
If you have any questions, Please ask!! I’d love to hear from you!
Enjoy! Happy Almost Halloween!!
