Create adorable mini pumpkins using easy to make candy clay for your holiday dessert table.
  • Pumpkins
  • 1 12 ounce bag orange candy melts
  • ¼ Cup corn syrup

  • 4 ounce green candy melts or green leaf edibles
  • 2 Tablespoons corn syrup for green candy melts
How to Make
  1. Melt candy in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave at 30 second intervals (stir) and microwave more if needed. Add the corn syrup. Do not add any water as this will ruin the recipe.
  2. Stir until the batter seizes up and gets to a soft-like dough.
  3. Dump dough into a Ziploc bag or saran wrap. Leave at room temperature for 8 hours or in the fridge for 2-3 hours.
  4. Thaw slightly and knead to create a pliable dough.
  5. Mold pumpkins in a ball, using a dull knife to create the lines on the pumpkins.
  6. Add edible green leaves or make your own using green candy melts.
