Cruising some of my favorite sites the other day, I came across some Oreos disguised as apples over at Cookies and Cups. They were so cute that I shared her link on Facebook. My friend Katrina from Baking and Boys commented that she saw the cookies too, and she was envisioning pumpkins.
That was a great idea!
So I said, “Let’s make them!”
And Oreo Pumpkin Pops were born.
I used Wilton’s Orange Candy Melts and had a hard time with them. I ended up “frosting” my cookies instead of dipping them. I tried to melt the discs on the stove but they seized up on me. I should have used a double boiler. Lesson learned! I also used some candy sugar eyes I bought from Bake It Pretty. I used some pipe cleaners to make the curly vine, a pretzel piece for a stem and a wafer leaf tops off the pop.
How cute are these?
Thank you Katrina for suggesting pumpkins and making these with me. They are such a cute idea and I cant wait to play with some more.
I’m thinking about dressing them up for Halloween.
Now head on over and check out Katrina’s pops!
