Morgan 1 box white cake mix 1 can pure pumpkin puree 1 cup water 3/4 tsp. pumpkin spice 3/4 tsp. cinnamon 1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips 1 bag Candy Corn About 30 chocolate covered almonds 1 tube of red icing About 30 lollipop sticks Mix together cake mix, pump- kin, water, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon. Pour into glass pan and spread evenly, then bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Let the cake cool completely; It should still be a little gooey so that they easily roll into balls. Once cooled, roll into small balls and place on parchment lined plate or tray. Put cake balls on lollipop sticks and freeze for 30 minutes. Melt semi-sweet chocolate chips and coat the cake balls. Attach candy corn on one side of the cake ball about 4-5 in a semi-circle. Attach a chocolate covered almond to the other side of the cake ball. Cut the tip off of about 30 candy corns. Attach one candy corn tip to the chocolate covered almond with red icing. Cool in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Makes about 30 cake pops. James Dworestsky Memorial Holiday Parade. 7pm. Jeffersonville.
