Ingredients

For pumpkins:

  • 12 ounces orange candy melts
  • 12 ounces California Walnuts (halves)
  • Green candy-coated chocolates

For mummies:

For monsters:

Instructions

To melt the candy melts:

  • Line a plate or baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper (something that will fit in your refrigerator).
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave candy melts at 40% power or defrost setting for 1 minute. Stir thoroughly. Continue to microwave and stir at 30-second intervals until smooth and completely melted.

To turn walnuts into pumpkins:

  • Dip California Walnut halves into melted orange candy melts and transfer to parchment paper. While the chocolate is still melted, add a green chocolate candy to one end for the "stem." Refrigerate until the candy is set, about 30 minutes.

To turn walnuts into mummies:

  • Dip California Walnut halves into melted white candy melts and transfer to parchment paper.  Using a spoon, drizzle more white chocolate over the walnuts to create the look of "bandages." While the chocolate is still melted, add googly eye candies. Refrigerate until the candy is set, about 30 minutes.

To turn walnuts into monsters:

  • Dip California Walnut halves into melted green candy melts and transfer to parchment paper. While the chocolate is still melted, add googly eye candies. Refrigerate until the candy is set, about 30 minutes.
