Pumpkin Shaped Cake Pops: Graham Cracker And Peanut Butter Pops

600x200_ghoulishgrub

Fall is my season. I love everything about it: the sweaters, hot chocolate and blankets.

I also love the baking.

When it is colder outside there is almost nothing better than turning on the oven and heating up the house with the smells of fresh baked … well, anything really.

These pumpkin shaped cake pops are a great alternative to the traditional baking you might already be creating for fall.

They are easy enough that the kids can help but look so good you will want to take them to the office party. 

I worked with Wayfair Canada to bring you this post. If you haven’t checked out their site yet go now – I’ll wait :).

If you are like me and can get just a smigened overwhelmed when you have so many choices I have picked out some of my favourite cake stands.

Cake stands are a great way to display your cake pops.

Plus cake stands are so multi-use that you can use them for so many things.

Other than cake or pie I also use my cake stand to create centerpieces for big holiday meals.

Pumpkin Shaped Cake Pops: Graham Cracker And Peanut Butter Pops

Ingredients

1-1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 10 to 12 standard-sized crackers)

4 oz. cream cheese (about half a cup)

¼ cup peanut butter

1.5 cups orange candy melts

1 teaspoon coconut oil

Lollipop sticks

¼ cup melted chocolate

Green icing

Pumpkin Shaped Cake Pops: Graham Cracker And Peanut Butter Pops

Directions

Yields: 15 to 20 1-inch pops

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a large bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, cream cheese and peanut butter. Mix until you achieve a fairly sticky consistency. If you feel like your mixture is still too dry, continue adding peanut butter, one tablespoon at a time.

Roll graham cracker mixture into one-inch balls and place on your lined baking sheet.

In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave your candy melts for about 30 seconds. Stir in coconut oil and microwave for another 30 seconds.

With the help of a fork, dip and coat your graham cracker balls in the melted candy. Let them set on your lined baking sheet.

Place a lollipop stick into each graham cracker ball. With the help of another lollipop stick (or a toothpick), carefully dab on some melted chocolate at the end of the lollipop stick (the end that meets that graham cracker treat).

Using a piping bag, pipe green icing on top, giving them a “swirly” shape – these will act as your pumpkins’ leaves.

Place in the refrigerator until set (about 20 to 30 minutes). Enjoy!
