Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. We have fun making not so spooky (no bake) witch cakes, decorating the yard with tacky inflatables that my kids LOVE, and going to trunk or treat festivals. However, some schools opt for a more generic Fall or Harvest Party instead of a Halloween focused one. Typically those parties specify no scary things like ghosts, goblins or monsters.
If your child’s school requires this or if you are just looking for a fun seasonal treat without a Halloween focus, these little treats are easy and festive.
Harvest Party No Bake Pumpkin Cupcakes
It is only September and the pumpkins are already everywhere. I have seen them at the grocery store, of course Hobby Lobby, and all over Pinterest. I even found 45 unique pumpkin spice products on Amazon. And I love the beauty of a plain pumpkin as part of your Fall decor. So why not bring a sweet little orange pumpkin for a class party?
My daughter and I whipped up a couple of these yesterday for an afternoon treat. If you can unwrap Hostess cupcakes, you can make these harvest party no bake pumpkin cupcakes. In fact, your 4 year old can do it! I love involving the kids in making seasonal treats.
What You Need
– Green M&M’s (I just bought a regular bag of M&M’s and picked out the green ones)
When making kid treats, I love to find things that use just a couple of ingredients that are easy to find. It cuts down on costs and allows me to do more fun things for each holiday.
Making the Harvest Party No Bake Pumpkin Cupcakes
Get ready, you are going to be able to make these adorable pumpkin cakes and still have time to go take a bubble bath (or who am I kidding, you will have time to do the 3 loads of laundry waiting, homework and dance lessons – but Hey, at least you will have time!).
Unwrap the orange cupcakes and turn them upside down on your platter or in your clear cello bags (the icing swirl should be facing down).
Take a green M&M and put a dab of white icing on the bottom (skinny side so that it will stand up vertically). Using the icing like glue, stand the M&M upright in the center of your cupcake.
Bam! Now you have a set of harvest party no bake pumpkin cupcakes to take to school festivities. Would your kids like these pumpkin cakes?
