These Pumpkin Spice cake pops are the perfect way to gear up for Halloween and the fall season!

I thought after returning from the Duncan Hines trip things would start to slow down but I was dead wrong! I’ve been so busy however I’ve finally managed to squeeze in the time to bake something! Included in our DH gift box that was mailed home to everyone who attended the Sweet Stars weekend was a Pumpkin Spice cupcake kit. I actually saw these on the shelf at Walmart the day before l left to DH so when I arrived I mentioned it to one of the DH team members who was quite surprised that I had already seen them. I guess my rural Walmart was one of the first to have these out, major shocker! I had the pleasure of trying these in cupcake form during our time at the test kitchen and they were AMAZING! I was glad to see them in our gift box 🙂

My idea came from the obvious, pumpkin flavor and the fall season that is upon us!

To make these pops you will need:

– DH Pumpkin spice cupcake kit
– Orange melting candy
– Sticks, I used popsicle sticks for a more rustic feel
– Foam Block for drying
– Any green candy for a stem
– I used twine to embellish the sticks but it’s not necessary.

Bake your cake & allow to cool
Once the cake has cooled crumble it into a large mixing bowl
In this case you will need to follow the box instructions to create the pumpkin spice frosting
Add small amounts of frosting to the crumbled cake until it forms a dough like texture
Using a scoop or spoon remove some of the cake mixture and roll into balls

To achieve the look of a pumpkin you will need to use a pen or cake pop stick to indent lines all around the pop

chill in the freezer for 5-10 minutes
While the pops are chilling melt your orange candy
Remove pops from the freezer
Dip the tip of your stick into the melting candy, insert about halfway into the pumpkin pop, allow to dry
Once the sticks have dried submerge you’re entire pop into the melted candy, tap off the excessive
Apply green candy stem
Place on a foam block for drying
Once the pumpkin pops have completely dried I added a coat of gold pearl dust to give them a nice shimmer

These were some of the easiest cake pops I have ever made yet they look like they took a lot of time and effort! Enjoy!
