Halloween Pumpkin Heads Recipe

Guest Author - Brandii Lacey

Spending time with your kids celebrating Halloween can create life long memories. However, after purchasing your child’s costume, the pumpkins, and the Halloween candy, it can get a little scary for your wallet.

Thankfully, there's nothing scary about this Halloween Pumpkin Head recipe--it's is budget, time, and kid friendly.

Ingredients
  • 1 box of vanilla wafers (crushed)
  • ¾ cup grated coconut
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 can of frozen orange juice, undiluted
  • Food coloring (optional)
Directions
  1. Place vanilla wafers in a sealed plastic bag.
  2. Crumble the vanilla wafers by lightly pounding on the bag, or by gently using a rolling pen back and forth over the bag.
  3. Mix the vanilla wafer crumbs, coconut and powdered sugar in large bowl.
  4. Add the undiluted frozen orange juice and mix well. Use your hands as needed.
  5. Make different size pumpkins heads, from all to extra large, by rolling the mixture into your hands (similar to making different size cookies).
  6. Add a drop or two of food coloring to individual bowls of coconut. This is optional, but is a great way to add some color to the pumpkin heads.
  7. Roll the orange balls in powdered sugar or into the bowls of colored coconut flakes.
Here’s where the creativity comes into play—let your kids find household edible items to use for the pumpkin’s eyes, nose, ears, mouth, and even hair! Or, why not try to make a Halloween ghost?

Here are a few suggestions for pumpkin head decorations to get you and your kids started:
  • For the eyes, nose and teeth, Halloween candy such as candy corn, life savers, skittles, etc., are the perfect ingredients.
  • For the mouth, you can use thinly sliced strips of a fruit roll up or similar snack.
  • Your child can also make ghosts out of this recipe. Simply shape the mixture into a ghost shape, and roll it into a bowl of powdered sugar. Again, let your child be creative by adding ingredients from your refrigerator, freezer, and pantry.
Make sure to keep your festive creations chilled in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
