Pumpkin Weecakies: The First of my Thanksgiving cake pops

Pumpkins are a very versitle vegetable.  We enjoy the trailing vines and huge leaves winding their way throughout our gardens.  We savor the mellow flesh in spicy pies, cakes, cookies and breads.  Our family especially likes the seeds salted and roasted in the oven for crunchy snacks.  Pumpkins have been the center of folk-lore, from Cinderella's fairy-carriage and Peter Peter's wife's domain to the frightening firey head tossed at the terrified Ichabod Crane.  Pumpkin Weecakies, however, are uniquely different.  They each have a yummy, mellow truffle center of either pumpkin-chocolate chip cake or apple spice cake.  Each Weecakie is hand-formed into a pumpkin shape-some are long and skinny, some are pear-shaped, some are traditionally round, and some are just weird.  All are dipped in pumpkin-colored white Callebaut chocolate and topped with a colored chocolate stem.  They are perfect for all your Autumnal Celebrations.  These are not ordinary cake pops.  Pumpkin Weecakies are a fantastic taste treat that everyone will love-especially if your name is Peter, or Cinderella, or Prince Charming, or....YOU!

 Happy Celebrations!
