Party Favors: Oreo Pumpkin Pops

Today I thought I would share these fun pumpkin party favors that I made for Mama Tex’s Little Pumpkin shower.  These would be cute for a Halloween party or for a Thanksgiving celebration…maybe the centerpiece for the kids’ table?

Pumpkin Party Favors

The pumpkin pops are actually Double Stuff Oreos dipped in orange Wilton Candy Melts. The stems are green Tic-Tacs.  To create the pops, I followed this tutorial from Mindy Long.  You can hop over there for the full tutorial, but to summarize, I stuck lollipop sticks into the centers of the Oreos, dipped them in the candy melts, and added the Tic-Tacs while the candy was still wet. Once they were dry, I drizzled more melted candy on top to get the zig-zag effect you see here.  MUCH quicker and easier than cake pops, and just as cute!

When they were dry, I placed the pops in plastic treat bags and tied on some simple, handwritten “Thank You” tags with small blue ribbon.

For the presentation, I found a cute, rustic basket on the clearance aisle at JoAnn’s.  I also picked up a foam block from the floral area.

I began by placing the foam block inside the basket.

To fill in the gaps, I crumpled up some turquoise tissue paper and stuffed it down the sides. (These photos were taken after the party using the leftovers, so ignore the holes in the foam.)

Then I pushed the lollipop sticks down into the foam.

To cover the foam, I used a bag of candy corn and a bag of miniature pumpkins.

For the “Take One” sign, I resurrected a small wooden craft board that I had painted with chalkboard paint for another project. I found it in the wood crafting section of Michaels.

I wrote on it with chalk and then hot glued some jute twine to the back.  I really wanted to drill holes in the corners, but seeing as it was after midnight the night I did this, I thought firing up the drill would be inconsiderate 😉

After the glue dried, I tied the sign onto the handles so it hung on the front of the basket.

And there you have it!  A fun pumpkin-themed treat for your party guests. Enjoy!

  1. These are so cute! I love the way they’re stuck in the basket. I saw lollipops stuck into a pumpkin (I think on Martha Stewart) but I thought the sticks would get all gross, this is definitely better.
