Welcome to Part 2 of my Halloween series. Missed Part 1? Take a look here – Halloween Treat Holders.

Want to add an extra snack to your Halloween party? Have a go at making our Pumpkin Oreo Pops! A fun and easy bake that everyone can join in with!

What we’ll need:2016-10-12-15-17-18

  • Oreos or any round biscuit

  • 200g White chocolate or orange candy melts

  • Orange food colour (I used yellow & red and mixed the two)

  • Black and green piping icing

  • Cake pop sticks

  1. Let’s get started! Line a baking tray with some greaseproof paper and put to one side.

  2. Melt down all of your chocolate in a heatproof bowl. I melted my chocolate in the microwave using 20 second blasts and mixing in between.

  3. When all of the chocolate is melted, add in your food colouring and stir well.

  4. Our next step is to attach the cake pop sticks to the biscuits. I found the best way to do this was to dip the end of the stick into the chocolate and stick this to the biscuit. I then chilled these all in the freezer for a couple of minutes.

  5. My first attempt didn’t turn out so great! I didn’t leave the chocolate to cool enough so most of it dripped off the biscuit! But after leaving it for a couple of minutes to cool, it stuck to the biscuits brilliantly!

  6. Once the sticks have attached fully, you can then dip the biscuits into the chocolate. Dunk the biscuits so they are completely covered (sides as well) and put them back on the baking tray. Pop them back in the freezer/fridge to chill until the chocolate is set. Just make sure when choosing your biscuits, none of them are broken because they can be tricky to work with!

  7. Now the fun bit! Decorating them! You can decorate them however you want to but I went for roughly the same design on all of them but you can give all of the pumpkins different faces! Once you have finished, pop them back in the fridge again to firm up a bit.

And you’re done! Display them however you want, if you don’t end up eating them first! This snack would work great at any party or could even be a sort of game for younger kids!

Join me on Wednesday for the final part of my Halloween series! If you have a go, don’t forget to send me your makes on twitter @aBoxofButtons and instagram @hann_lloyd. See you next week!
