My boys wanted a snack and a fun project to do. I was trying to think of something in the theme of Halloween since it’s right around the corner. I spied the box of Halloween Hostess GloBalls on the kitchen table and thought, what could we do with those?

My 4 year old said, “Let’s make them into Jack-O-Lanterns!”

I started rummaging through the cabinets for what might work and found:

  • chocolate chips
  • chocolate spread or peanut butter
  • writing icing(optional, I found this last Halloween on clearance. Pretty much lasts forever.)
  • Hostess GloBalls


Put a little chocolate spread into a bowl. Pour some chocolate chips into another bowl. This helps keep the chocolatey fingers out of the bag.

Dip the pointy end of the chocolate chip in the chocolate spread for “glue” and push it firmly into the GloBall in the desired location. My 8 year old was having a lot of fun with this, making ears and other extra features.

Use writing icing to create a stem or mustache or eyebrows…it’s your Jack-O-Lantern, get creative!

My boys gobbled these up quicker than they made them! And they had so much fun creating their master pieces!!

I was provided with Hostess GloBalls to create my recipe. All thoughts and opinions are my own!
