What is a Harvest Cup you ask? A nifty and unique Halloween-time treat. The bottom of the cup contains candy or trail mix with two gummy worms popping out then topped with a layer of melted chocolate- white, milk, or dark and some candy pumpkins followed by a sprinkle of “dirt.” I have made these in my son’s class when they had a Harvest Fest a few years back and the kids went bongo for them. The children made these in assembly line fashion and really enjoyed their creations. Harvest Cups are an adorable and very messy, fun treat to eat and the kids always get a kick out of them. As soon as my kids saw these, they immediately wanted one. I will be donating Harvest Cups for the Harvest Bake Sale at school next week. Get in line!
Here is what you will need to make your own Harvest Cups:
Gummy Worms- 2 per cup
Trail Mix- I used Trader Joe’s Organic Trek Mix- 1/2 C. per cup
Candy Corn- 1/2 C. per cup
Candy Melts- white and milk chocolate- I used about 15 disks per cup
1 sleeve Oreo Cookies-processed fine- 2 T. per cup
Pumpkin Candies- 3 per cup
9 ounce clear plastic cups
Top the melted chocolate with 2 tablespoons cookie crumbs. Using your fingers press cookie crumbs into chocolate and brush any extra crumbs off the pumpkins. All the crumbs will not stick but that is okay.
Let the chocolate set. Wrap each Harvest Cup in a cellophane bag and tie with raffia. To eat, loosen chocolate from the edge of the cup using a paring knife. Turn cup over gently on to a plate. Using a paring knife cut the chocolate disks in to fourths and the worms in half then enjoy the coated chocolate and loose treats. Each cup serves 4.
