Make Your Own Mickey Pumpkin Truffles This Halloween
- 36 chocolate sandwich cookies
- 8 oz cream cheese, softened
- 1 package orange candy melts
- Yellow, orange, and green fondant
Always use caution when handling sharp objects and hot contents. Please supervise children who are helping or nearby.
Pulse chocolate sandwich cookies in a food processor until crumbly. Pour into a medium mixing bowl. Mix in cream cheese and stir until a dough-like consistency forms.
Roll mixture into 1-inch balls and place on a baking sheet. Chill for at least an hour.
While truffles chill, roll out 48 small orange balls of fondant to form Mickey ears.
Melt candy melts in a microwave. Dip a chilled truffle in the melted candy melts and toss until the truffle is fully coated. Place onto a lined baking sheet. While the coating is still melted, carefully place two orange balls of fondant on the top sides of the truffle. You may need to hold the ears in place until the candy melt coating dries. Repeat this process to all the truffles.
Roll out the green fondant into a thin layer. Use a utility knife to cut out leaf shapes and gently carve details into the leaves. Make thin coils out of the fondant to make vines and stems. Use a toothpick to apply a small amount of melted candy melt to adhere the leaves, stems, and vines to the tops of the truffles.
Roll out the yellow fondant into a thin layer. Use a utility knife to cut out the Mickey Pumpkin’s eyes, nose, and mouth. For the eyes, cut out ovals and use orange candy melt to apply the inner eye pieces. Use small amounts of melted candy melt to adhere the facial features to the truffles.
