    1. Empty whole package of Hy-Vee Bakery-fresh pumpkin bars into medium mixing bowl. Wearing gloves, mix pumpkin bars together until thoroughly combined.

    2. Roll pumpkin bar mixture into one-inch balls. Place cake balls on plate or cookie sheet and refrigerate for one hour or until firm. 

    3. Microwave candy melts in a small microwave-safe bowl for 30-second increments until candy is fully melted. Stir until smooth.​

    4. Using two forks, dip cake balls into bowl of melted candy, completely covering each cake ball.

    5. Place dipped cake balls onto parchment paper-lined cutting board. Insert fork into top of each cake ball. Add candy eyeball to each cake ball before melted candy hardens.

    6. Use red gel food coloring squeeze tube to decorate each eyeball cake pop with thin lines to add bloodshot eye effect. Store in refrigerator until ready to eat.
