Spook-tacular Fruit Cups with Bubbling Witches Brew

Prepare Bubbling Witches Brew:
To make 5 cups, freshly squeeze 3 1/2 cups mandarin orange juice and 1/2 cup lemon juice. Cover and chill.
When ready to serve, pour chilled juice into punch bowl or pitcher and stir in 1 cup chilled
sweet sparkling soda and ice cubes. Taste for sweetness.
Peel and slice mandarin oranges to make pinwheel shapes that resemble spider webs to garnish each drink. Use frozen red or black grapes as an additional optional garnish.

Prepare Fruit Cups:
Cut off top 1/5 of a fresh Chilean navel orange and use paring knife to separate fruit from inside of orange, being careful not to cut through peel. It’s not necessary to get all of the flesh out, just enough to fill with cut fruit.

Squeeze juice from removed fruit and add to Bubbling Witches Brew.
If necessary, shave small amount of peel off bottom so cups sit level, being careful not to create an opening in the base. Use paring
knife to carve faces, and fill each cup with orange pieces, melon balls, grapes and blueberries.

Mummy Cake Pops

22-25 chocolate sandwich cookies
4oz cream cheese
1 cup white chocolate candy melts (or white chocolate chips)
black decorating gel

In a food processor, pulse cookies until they become coarse crumbs.
Add cream cheese and pulse until mixture becomes combined. Remove blade.
Roll dough into 1 inch balls.
Place balls in freezer for about 30 minutes.
Using a double boiler over low heat, melt white chocolate until smooth.
Place a candy stick or straw into the centre of each ball.
Using the straw, roll the cake pop in the melted white chocolate until it’s evenly coating.
Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and allow the coating to set fully.
Using a spoon or spatula, drizzle more white chocolate over set cake pops to create ‘mummuy lines’.
Allow to set completely.
Create spooky faces on each using black decorating gel.
