Oreo Pumpkins

When I saw this post at Cookies and Cups, I knew I had to give it a try!  She made apples out of Oreos, and I decided to try my luck with pumpkins.

These are so incredibly easy and fun to make!  And your kids will love them!
Here is what you need:
* Orange candy melts
* Oreos
* Dipping stick (popsicle stick or candy stick)
* Pretzel sticks, cut in half
* Ribbon
Melt the orange candy melts according to the package directions.  Using a dipping stick, dip an Oreo into the orange candy melt.  (I wasn't very good at this, and I ended up just spreading the candy melt all over the Oreos!)  Let set on wax paper.  Stick a half pretzel stick into the top to create the pumpkin's stem. Tie green ribbon around the stem to form the leaves.  Enjoy!

How fun would it be to decorate these to create jack-o-lanterns?!  I think we'll wait until Little Man is just a bit older for that!  Enjoy!

    Theses are really cute! And I am glad to know someone else has a hard time dipping things. Whenever I try to do it, something always goes awry. :)

  3. Very cute! I might have to try this.

    How cute! I wonder if you could make leaves out of fondant so that everything is edible? (I say that but should also say I've never worked with fondant in my life LOL! Just trying to think of what would be stiff enough for leaves!)

  18. These are adorable! I may need to pick up a bag of oreos tonight… I'm wondering how hard it would be to mix food coloring with white chocolate bark instead of using the candy melts… hmmm… :)

    Instead of ribbon I would be purchasing either watermelon fruit by the foot and cut them and tie around or the fruit licorce so the kids can eat all of it and you don't waste your pretty ribbon :) Will have to use this for an afternoon snack for my kiddos! Thanks for sharing.

    I shouldn't have seen these! I would love 100 of these. I'm highlighting this at somedaycrafts.blogspot.com

  34. brown paper packages says:

    These are DARLING!!! I love them!!

    I'll be featuring today, so come by and grab a button!!

  35. I think if you put the pretzel stick in the oreo first and then freeze them (or at least chill them), then you could dip them in the orange melt and pull it out easily.

  36. Can you tell me where I can buy Orange candy melts? I can't find them!

  37. C's Mommy says:

    I featured these yesterday!!!
    I did find that putting the sticks in the candy and then letting them harden in the freezer was helpful! They turned out SO cute and everyone loved them! Thank you and I love your blog!

  38. a few years from now, I'll make these with my grandbaby. Oh, heck, I know my hubby would love 'em right now!

    Chocolate covered Oreos are delicious with M&Ms stuck on them, too. You can also cover Nutter Butters with chocolate and candy pieces. I call them "potluck cookies" because they're so easy to whip up before a gathering, and everyone loves them and thinks you're a hero and a culinary genius for making them. My recipe for chocolate covered potluck cookies is here.
