Mommy’s Kitchen – Home Cooking & Family Friendly Recipes: Candy Corn Jell-O Poke Cake

Candy Corn Jell-O Poke Cake 

{mommyskitchen.net}

1 – 15 oz boxed white cake mix +

egg whites, oil or butter, and water called for on cake mix

1 – 3 oz box orange gelatin (Jell-O}

1 – 3 oz box lemon gelatin {Jell-O}

1 – cup boiling water

1 – cup cold water

1 – 16 oz container heavy whipping cream 

3/4 – cup powdered sugar

1/2 – teaspoon vanilla extract 

1 – cup candy corn candies & holiday sprinkles

Prepare and bake cake according to package directions, spraying a 13 x 9 inch baking pan with non stick spray. I substituted melted butter in place of the oil called for on the box mix. Allow cake to cool about 20 minutes.  

Using a large fork poke holes evenly across the entire cake. Mix the orange Jell-O with 1/2 cup boiling water until dissolved. Add 1/2 cup cold water and mix until blended. Pour the orange Jell-O into every other row of fork holes (make sure to use all the gelatin) going back over the initial holes if needed. 

Mix together the lemon Jell-O with the same amount of water and pour over the remaining holes. Cover cake with plastic wrap and refrigerate cake for 2-4 hours.  

To prepare the whipped cream frosting, start with a cold bowl. I used my Kitchen aid mixer bowl with the whisk attachment, and placed it in the freezer for about 15 minutes. Remove bowl from freezer and add 2 cups heavy cream and set on medium speed. 

Add the powdered sugar and the vanilla extract. Whip the cream slowly (this is key and keeps the cream from separating later). Whisk for about 10-15 minutes until the cream begins to ripple (be patient).

Turn the mixer off and finish whisking by hand using a wire whisk until the cream starts to thicken and stick to the whisk. Be careful not to whisk to hard or the cream will become clumpy.

Spread the whipped cream frosting over the entire cake using an offset spatula.Refrigerate the cake at least 4 hours before serving. Add the sprinkles and the candy corn candies just before serving. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.

Pumpkin Bread Truffles

http://www.bhg.com/recipes/desserts/candy/pumpkin-bread-truffles/?socsrc=bhgfb09131514

image

What You’ll Need:

one 9×5-in. loaf pumpkin bread (about 1 lb.)
1 cup (about 8-1/2 oz.) cream cheese frosting
24 oz. orange candy coating
2 Tbsp. chocolate chips or chocolate candy coating
2 oz. green candy coating

Crumble the baked and cooled pumpkin bread into a large bowl, and work it gently between your fingers until it is in small pieces.

Add the frosting to the pumpkin bread crumbs, and stir them together until well-combined and no streaks of frosting remain. The mixture should be moist and hold together if you squeeze it into a ball between your fingers. If it seems too dry, add another spoonful or two of frosting to get it to a workable consistency.

Use a small 1-inch candy scoop or a spoon to scoop out small balls of the pumpkin bread mixture. Roll them between your palms until perfectly round, then place them on abaking sheet covered with parchment or waxed paper. Chill the balls for 2 to 3 hours or until firm.

Place the orange candy coating in a medium microwave-safe bowl and microwave it until melted, stirring after every 30 seconds to prevent overheating. Use dipping tools or a fork to dip a pumpkin bread truffle into the orange candy coating. Let the excess drip back into the bowl, then place the truffle back on the baking sheet. Repeat until all of the truffles are dipped.

Melt the chocolate chips or chocolate candy coating in the microwave, and stir the melted chocolate into the remaining melted orange coating to make a deeper orange color. Transfer the dark orange coating to a paper cone, piping bag fitted with a small round tip, or a plastic bag with a small hole cut in the corner. Pipe intersecting lines across the top of the truffles to represent the pumpkin’s creases.

Melt the green candy coating in a microwave-safe bowl, and transfer it to a paper cone, piping bag fitted with a small round tip, or a plastic bag with a small hole cut in the corner. Pipe curls of green coating on top of each pumpkin to represent vines. Refrigerate the truffles briefly to set the candy coating. For the best taste and texture, serve Pumpkin Bread Truffles at room temperature, and store extra truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
