By now, many of you know how much I (Kim) dearly love Halloween. I love the weather turning cooler. Notice I didn’t say, “colder” I said, “cooler.” I love the bright colors of oranges and reds when the leaves turn. I love bundling up for Friday night football games and sitting around the firepit after. We have a pumpkin patch in our city that sells pumpkins dirt cheap. You can see how I practically raid their pumpkin patch from our Halloween post last year . Sadly, I am told by the pumpkin patch owner that I am not her best customer.
Both my daugther and I have a birthday in October. This means I can extend my love for Halloween to her classroom when we bring birthday treats. Fortunately, she loves this as well. This year, I made Halloween Cake Pops. My daughter has an allergy towards gluten so I have found that this is an easy treat to bring to the classroom. I just used gluten free cake mix. Not only that, but if I am really careful, I can also make them tree nut free. She does not have a kid with a peanut allergy in her class this year so I did not worry about that piece. I am not going to make this a blog post about how to make cake pops. Celeste has an awesome post where she shows that and you can look at it here. All of these were pretty simple to do so I will just put the items that I used beneath each picture so you know in the event that you want to attempt these yourself. I used those green floral things from the craft store to hold the cake pops. I placed those in a shoe box. I would like to have wrapped the box in black paper and filled it with candy corn but I didn’t think about that until it was too late. All of the ingredients were either purchased at the craft store or the candy store and are edible.
Although I would say this was a simple project it was also time consuming. You will see that there are also pumpkins in there. These were the shoddiest of the bunch. I used orange candy melts for the pumkins and the same yellow candies for the eyes. For the mouth I used those banana shaped candies. I found all of this stuff at the candy store…not the candy isle at the grocery store. I would say the best Halloween Cake Pops were the Mummy and the Spider. The kids loved them! Cake pops are great for classroom parties so if you need a treat idea this might be for you! Don’t forget to look at our ideas for classroom Halloween Parties!
