Easy Halloween Push Pops

Easy Halloween Push Pops - Fun and colorful halloween colored push pops filled with vanilla frosting and vanilla cake colored black.

 

These easy Halloween push pops went over so well with Lucian. He has a cute little black face and fingers but I made him one happy little boy with these. He has yet to try those Flintstones push pops, but I bet he would love those too. Wait, do they even still make those? I remember eating them as a little girl. I know he doesn't know who the Flintstones are. We occasionally throw on the Boomerang channel to see what he says, but he's never impressed.

I used this recipe for two different Halloween projects. I figured I had so much fun with this first one, I would do a twist on it and make some cute cupcakes. I'll be sharing those Friday so come back to see them!

I got my push pop molds from my monthly subscription of My Bakers Box. Along with the push pop molds, I got sprinkles, white frosting, cupcake liners  and decorative spider wrappers, and zombie sugar dec-ons. You may see a lot of the other goodies on Friday's post. πŸ˜‰

Ingredients
  

Cake

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • β…“ cup butter
  • 1 cup water
  • black gel paste color

Frosting

  • 1 cup butter room temperature
  • 5 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 - 6 tablespoons heavy cream
  • Electric Orange Electric Green, Electric Purple and Regal Purple
  • Halloween sprinkles

Instructions

Cake

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a ΒΌ sheet pan with parchment paper. Spray the parchment paper with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Prepare the boxed cake mix like instructed. Mine required 3 eggs, β…“ cup butter and 1 cup of water. Be sure to use what your boxed cake mix requires.
  • Add in black gel paste color. Add enough to make the cake batter black or gray. If you don't want to use as much food coloring, use a chocolate cake instead. The color will darken up slightly as it bakes.
  • Spread into the ΒΌ sheet pan.
  • Place into the oven and bake for 17 minutes or until done. Check with a toothpick. If it comes out clean or with moist crumbs, it's done. If there's batter, let it bake a little longer.
  • Let cool completely.
  • Find a cutter the size of the push pop opening or slightly smaller. I just used the push pop container and cut out all of the circles and then washed the push pop mold.

Frosting

  • In a mixing bowl, add the butter, powdered sugar and heavy cream. Mix on low until the powdered sugar is incorporated.
  • Turn the mixer on high and whip for about 2 minutes until light and fluffy.
  • Divide the frosting into thirds.
  • Color each third the one of the halloween gel paste colors. I combined the electric purple and regal purple to get the perfect purple, in my opinion. Add as much or as little. I added quite a bit to get the deep colors.
  • Place each color into a sandwich bag. Cut the corner off each bag.
  • Press a piece of cake into the push pop mold.
  • Pipe in the first color of your choice. I used purple first.
  • Add another piece of cake.
  • Pipe in the second color. I used orange.
  • Add another piece of cake.
  • Pipe in the third color. I used green and a piping tip.
  • Add Halloween sprinkles to the top.
  • Repeat with the 3 remaining push pop molds.

Notes

To store any leftover halloween push pops, place in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator in an air tight container for up to 3 days.
