There is a lot of time involved in making these, only because you’ll have to wait between layers for the mixtures to freeze. The actual making of the mixtures takes 10 minutes tops.

Candy Corn Orange Layer

In a blender, put 1/2 cup of mandarin oranges, 1/2 cup of Silk Vanilla Coconutmilk, 1/4 tsp coconut extract, 4 drops orange food coloring and 1 teaspoon of sugar (optional) and blend until smooth. These really don’t need the extra teaspoon of sugar, but if you want to make them more like a dessert-y kind of Popsicle throw it in there.

Pull the stopper all the way down on your push pop container so it’s ready to fill. Pour the orange mixture into each of your 6 push pop containers until they are about a third full. Place upright into the freezer. I cleared off a shelf in my freezer and used the wire racks to hold the containers straight up and down and it worked well.

Candy Corn White Layer

Rinse out your blender, then add 1/2 cup Silk Vanilla Coconutmilk, 12 cup shredded coconut, 1/4 tsp coconut extract and 1 tsp sugar (optional). Blend until smooth. Once the orange layer is firmly frozen, pour the white coconut mixture into each push pop container until the two thirds mark and return to the freezer.

Candy Corn Yellow Layer

Rinse your blender  once again and then add 1/2 cup Silk Vanilla Coconutmilk, 1/2 cup pineapple, 1/4 tsp coconut extract, 4 drops yellow food coloring and 1 teaspoon sugar (optional). Blend until smooth. After the white layer is firmly frozen, pour the yellow/pineapple into each push pop container until each nears the top. Place the lids on each container and return to the freezer. Once the yellow layer is frozen, they are ready to serve!

The skulls themselves are from the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos that is celebrated on November 1st by the latin american community. Nicole from Tikkido did a fabulous themed party with Dia de los Muertos several years ago when we published { Read More! }

Tissue Pom Garland Tutorial

When I started thinking about fluffy mounds of whipped cream, I kept coming back to fluffy white clouds...out of which my angel first birthday party theme was born. Nothing like getting inspiration from a can of Reddi-wip! The next step was to figure out how to create that airy cloud feeling. There was a picture I saw of a very brightly colored party recently that stood out in my mind, but I { Read More! }
