Make Small Batches--It Works Better
To make more candy pumpkins,
just repeat the process.
Make these candy pumpkins
in small batches.
Once you start melting the
almond bark, you need to pour it
quickly or it "sets" again so melting
one cup at a time seems to work well.
Supplies to Make Candy Pumpkins
Keep these simple ingredients on hand and make candy pumpkins any time. It's also easy to make candy for other holidays (snowmen for winter, Christmas trees for Christmas, eggs for Easter, shamrocks for St. Patrick's day, and on and on!).
To store these candy pumpkins, line a tin or plastic container with waxed paper.
Layer the waxed paper to keep them
from sticking to each other.
Store in the refrigerator or freezer.
They will thaw quickly so put them
on a platter and serve them.
