Chocolate Covered Mellowcreme Pumpkins

Mellowcreme pumpkins get significantly less love than candy corn. People put candy corn in everything: popcorn, Rice Krispies treats, candy bark.  And what do the pumpkins get? Oh, here, let me put you on top of a cupcake for someone to just remove and forget about. That’s rough.

So what’s the deal with this mellowcreme aversion? I’ve heard it’s because the pumpkins are too sugary. Say what? Too sugary? There is no such thing. And people who think otherwise are a bunch of Hallo-weenies. (And the hits keep coming.)

So today, I thought I’d give candy corn a much needed break and put candy pumpkins in the spotlight.

Chocolate-covered Mellowcreme Pumpkins


– baking bark

– 1 regular-sized bag of Mellowcreme Pumpkins


1. Melt bark.

2. Coat pumpkins.

3. Chill in the freezer to set.

I was able to coat the entire bag of pumpkins with one square of regular chocolate bark and one square of white chocolate bark.  Consider candy corn a ghost of Halloweens past because these chocolate-covered Mellowcreme Pumpkins are scary good.
