Halloween is supposed to be scary right?

Well, there’s nothing scary about these easy Oreo Pumpkins except how my daughter is after eating half a package of candy eyeballs. That, my friends, is truly scary indeed. However, if you could hear the little voice going, “More eyeballs, peas, Mama,” then you might let her gorge herself on them too.

I wish I had audio recording of making these with her. It was ridiculous sounding. You would have thought I was raising a little cannibal.

In all seriousness though, these Oreo Pumpkins are easy enough to make, even with a little one helping you. Just be prepared to lose a lot of candy eyeballs along the way if your kiddo is anything like mine. It was really fun to make these with her too. I’m excited that Goose is finally at the age where I can do these easy food crafts with her. This was a big thing for me in the era known as B.K. (before kid). Now that she is old enough to follow directions mostly, this kind of thing will be happening a lot more.

We’ll just have to work on her not eating the candy eyeballs in process.

And indeed, these are so easy. You just need a few things: Oreos or other round sandwich cookies, orange candy melts, a spoonful or two of coconut oil, and some tootsie rolls. That’s it!

Melted Orange Candy

Then to do it, you melt the candy melts with a spoon or two of coconut oil and stir until smooth. Pro tip: don’t skip the oil. I tried this without the oil and rather than looking like cute silly pumpkins, they looked like the ultimate Pinterest fail.

Roll out a tootsie roll using your hands into a long thin rope.

Then dip the cookies into the melted candy. If you only do a few at a time, it works best.

Shake off excess candy

Then before the candy sets, press a small piece of the rolled Tootsie Roll into the side of the cookie.

Add the stems

Then press on the eyes.

Add the eyeballs

If the candy has firmed up just dab a little more melted candy on the back of the eyeballs and gently put them on. Draw on some mouths with icing gel, and boom: Oreo Pumpkins.
