Candy Corn Creeper Pops
Nothing is more fun for Halloween than making treats with your kids. My 2 year old went crazy over these and we had a ball making these together. We worked on a plastic table cloth to minimize the clean up and she loved every minute of it. The best part of course was watching her devour her Candy Corn Creeper Pops.
Perfect for your Halloween party or neighborhood trick or treaters.
Check out these scrumptious Halloween treats:
Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Pops are incredibly simple, yet very impressive. A perfect addition at a kid's birthday party or baby shower!
Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies. Incredibly warm, wonderful, chewy and moist with little bits of apple and walnut throughout.
Butterscotch Pecan Cookies are out of this world delicious. Soft and chewy with the perfect crunch, you are going to love 'em!
Candy Corn Creeper Pops
makes 24 Creepers
24 6” lollipop sticks
Orange candy melts by Wilton
Yellow candy melts by Wilton
Black decorating icing by Wilton
Orange sugar crystals by Wilton or Cake Mate
Pour ½ yellow candy melts into a large tall and thin bowl (2 cup measuring cup is perfect). Microwave in 30 second intervals until fluid, stirring after each interval.
On a cookie sheet lined with parchment, place 24 marshmallows standing on end. (If you have any that won't stand up, you can eat those or save them for Rice Krispies Treats). Set aside.
Dip a 6" lollipop stick about ½” into melted candy. Push the candy covered end of the stick through marshmallow on tray. Repeat this until all the marshmallows have candy covered sticks in them. Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes to dry.
Dip marshmallow in melted yellow almost covering the marshmallow, within ¼” of the bottom. Spin back and forth until the candy melt stop streaming off the bottom. Repeat until all marshmallows are covered in yellow candy melt. Place on cookie sheet and allow to dry, about 5-10 minutes.
Pour ½ orange candy melts into a large tall and thin bowl (2 cup measuring cup is perfect). Microwave bowl in 30 second intervals until fluid, stirring after each interval.
Dip marshmallow in melted orange candy melts covering half of the yellow. Spin back and forth until the candy melt stop streaming off the bottom. Repeat until all marshmallows are done.
Hold marshmallow over bowl and sprinkle with sanding sugar. Press eyes into orange candy melts (this will be the basis for your face, so place carefully). Repeat until all marshmallows are complete. Allow to sit several hours to dry completely.
Using a #3 tip and coupler attached to black decorating icing draw on eyebrows and mouth. Continue to decorate as you wish; mohawk, spiky hair, no hair, glasses. Have fun and enjoy!
