These adorable ice cream pumpkins have a harvest look but folks will be pleasantly surprised to find a mix of vanilla ice cream and orange sherbet inside. These treats taste like the classic summer ice cream bar.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen

"This recipe was a dismal failure and a waste of money for the ingredients. I, too, had difficulty with this recipe. The melted candy coating would not smoothly cover the ice cream. It would adhere in some areas and in other areas it was thick and lumpy. I was very disappointed that I did not have a dessert for the party that I was attending."

"I had a really hard time getting them to look nice. I'm not really sure how to get the coating on. If you roll the ice cream in the melted coating it becomes paste like and slides right off but if you just drop the coating on it looks lumpy. I'm going to keep trying, though."
