Our pumpkin carving party is just a few weeks from now and I’ll be serving my guests these silly little Pumpkin Spice Jack-O-Lantern Rice Krispie Treat Pops on some new custom-designed stands from Cake Pop Stand Co.
Aren’t those jack-o-lantern pop stands cool?
They were designed for me by Janine of the Cake Pop Stand Co. Each wood stand has holes that are the perfect size for paper straws and are spaced far enough apart to display my Rice Krispie treat pops.
Each stand even has a little bling along the edges. They are really sturdy and held up my set of lollipops with ease.
I am really excited to have these on my table this Halloween to showcase these Pumpkin Spice Jack-O-Lantern Treats.
I’ll also be making some lollipops using a set of pumpkin embellished straws. She has a wonderful selection of paper straws.
This year, there will be no shrieking or shrinking, just big smiles. Big toothy grins. Just like on these silly jack-o-lanterns.
Each of these Rice Krispie treat pops has been dipped in Pumpkin Spice Candy Melts so they not only look like pumpkins but taste like them too. I couldn’t help but eat one, and I know my party guests are going to love them. The candy coating has just the right amount of pumpkin spice flavor and it pairs so well with the Rice Krispie treats. I need to store these under lock and key so I don’t eat any more before the party.
