Gumdrop Pumpkins

Servings: Makes as many as you want to make
Cut, press, cut, press, and you'll have these darling little pumpkins to help you celebrate at trick-or-treating time.

Use these gumdrops as party favors by placing several in a small crate, papier-mache box, or basket lined with crimped shredded paper. Tuck in a plastic spider ring as the frightful finishing touch.

What you will need:
Orange slice-shaped jelly candies
Small green gumdrops

1. To make pumpkins, trim the edges of two orange jelly candies to create straight sides. Push the two sticky sides together, forming a pumpkin shape.

2. Cut a small piece from the bottom of a small green gumdrop. Press into the top of candy pumpkin.

Makes as many as you want to make.
