EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

You can use a 1.55-ounce milk chocolate candy bar instead of the gumdrops for the eyes, nose and mouth. Cut the candy bar into 2 large triangles for eyes and 7 small triangles for nose and mouth.

Use a sharp knife or scissors to cut the eyes, nose and mouth from the flattened gumdrops.

Use a tube of green decorating gel and candy spearmint leaves to make vines and leaves for the pumpkin. Or roll out green gumdrops as directed in step 4, and cut into leaf shapes and vines.
