Chocolate Jack-O'-Lantern Bowls

This is a sponsored post by Challenge butter, but the text and opinions are all mine. Thank you for supporting brands that make Kylee's Kitchen possible!

If you haven’t realized it by now, I cannot get enough of these edible chocolate bowls! This is the third occasion that I’ve made them!

The first time I tried making them was 2 years ago for Chocolate Ice Cream Day. Chocolate bowls + chocolate ice cream sounded like a winning combination to me.

Most recently, I made them for Easter. I added cheesecake inside the bowls and a little lemon curd so they looked like eggs. They were pretty darn cute, if I do say so myself.

And now they’re jack-o’-lanterns in my latest creation!

When you finish making the bowls, you can fill them with anything. I wanted them to look a little spooky, so I decided to use dirt pudding with gummy worms! It made for a delicious 2-in-1 treat!

Before you skip down to the recipe READ HERE: Do not, I repeat, DO NOT dip the balloons in the chocolate while it’s still hot. The balloons will explode, causing a huge mess in your kitchen (been there, done that!).

Let the chocolate cool at least 10 minutes and test the temperature of before dipping them. Add oil if you’re worried about the chocolate stiffening too much.

Chocolate Jack-O-Lanterns
Yield: Makes about 8 to 10 bowls

  • Pudding mix
  • 2 cups milk
  • 20 Oreos, crushed
  • 4 ounces Challenge cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup Challenge butter
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 12 ounces white chocolate, melted
  • Orange food coloring
  • Oil, as needed
  • Chocolate frosting or melted milk chocolate for decorating


  1. Whisk pudding mix with milk for several minutes until non clubs remain and set aside.
  2. Put Oreos into gallon bag and crush until they’re in small pieces
  3. Mix together cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar until smooth. Add in crushed Oreos and mix until combined. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  4. Melt white chocolate until smooth. Add orange food coloring until chocolate reaches desired color of orange.
  5. The chocolate may seize up and not mix well when you add the food coloring. That’s okay! Just make it easier to stir by adding a little oil at a time,
  6. This is IMPORTANT: Let chocolate cool for about 15 minutes until you dip the balloons. Otherwise, they’ll explode!
  7. Dip balloons in chocolate so bottom portion and part of sides are completely covered. Set on baking sheet covered in wax paper and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  8. Pull bowls out of refrigerator and decorate using melted dark chocolate or brown frosting so they look like jack-o-lanterns. Pop balloons and peel them away from inside of egg.
  9. Fill bowls with pudding about halfway. Then add the Oreo dessert and gummy worms.
  10. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
