Welcome your little goblins this October with Pumpkin & Ghost Brownie Pops!

These sweet, fudgy, festive pops are both kid and crowd pleasers!

Let me show you how easy Pumpkin & Ghost Brownie Pops are to make.

Pumpkin & Ghost Brownie Pops

Start with a boxed brownie mix, prepare as directed and place in a 9 x 13 glass baking dish.

Bake your brownies for 28 minutes only, then allow to cool.

For pumpkin shapes, scoop a large amount into your palm and roll between hands into a ball shape.

Then with the backside of a butter knife, make grooves in your brownie ball.

It’s starting to look like a pumpkin now!

For the ghost shapes, scoop a bit more brownie into your hands and roll into a cylinder shape, then place upright onto waxed paper and manipulate the brownie until the desired ghost shape is formed. Revert to your play dough playing days!

Now is the time to insert a stick into the BOTTOM of each pumpkin or ghost. I used Wilton’s 6 in. Cookie Sticks. Lay on a cookie sheet and FREEZE.

Shaped brownie pops

You will need white, orange, and red candy melts. I chose to add a bit of red because the orange color wasn’t as intense as I liked. The white candy I already had on hand and it’s called white bark. I melted the candy into 2 separate cups, in the microwave. Do not over heat! To thin the consistency I added a tiny bit of vegetable oil.

Candy melts

Remove the brownie pops from the freezer and dip into the melted candy coating, swirling to coat well.

Candy coated Ghost Pop

Be prepared to reheat your candy to maintain a fluid consistency. I will admit that the ghosts were super easy to coat but my orange candy was too thick (I didn’t add veg oil soon enough). So instead of stressing, I simply used my finger to smooth the candy, following the form of the pumpkin, until it was covered. Fingers are allowed! You aren’t looking for perfection, just a nice coat. Imperfection gives each pop character!

place Brownie Pops into foam block

After dipping, set each stick into a block of Styrofoam and allow to set up.

So you see how the drips give the ghost a creepier appearance? For eyes and mouth, I dipped a toothpick in black coloring paste and dotted it on.  For a pumpkin leaf mix powdered sugar, green food coloring and a few drops of water. Place in a plastic snack baggie, snip off a corner and pipe on your little pumpkin. The stem is a chocolate chip.
