Two of my favorite complementary flavors are orange and chocolate.  In fact, in college I would occasionally splurge on one of those chocolate oranges at our school's bookstore as a reward after a difficult test or for consolation for a bad week.
Well, these flavors also happen to be perfect for Halloween, as orange and black are traditional Halloween colors!  What better way to create the perfect Halloween recipe than with Orange Fanta and OREOs? 
This Orange Fanta Pound Cake is drizzled with creamy, chocolate orange icing, then sprinkled with Oreo crumbles for the perfect topping.
I was so excited to see these Spooky "Glow-in-the-dark" Oreos when I was at Walmart, so I picked them up along with the Fanta and other ingredients for this recipe.  My kids will adore having a special treat from the leftovers.
It is the season of Halloween parties, Trunk-or-Treats, and more.  I was asked to bring a dessert to our church's party, so this is what I will be bringing.  It is so easy to make- and looks like you spent all day in the kitchen!

Ingredients:

Cake
3 Sticks Butter, softened
3 Cups Sugar
5 eggs
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup and 2 tbsp Orange Fanta 
2-4 drops orange food coloring
1 Tbsp Orange Zest (optional)

Chocolate Glaze
2 1/4 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup cocoa powder
2-3 drops black food coloring
1/4 cup Orange Fanta
1 tbsp orange juice (opt)
1 tsp Orange Zest

Topping
8-10 crushed OREOs

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition. Combine flour and salt, then add it 1 cup at a time, mixing after each addition. With the mixer on low, slowly add 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons orange pop until combined. Add orange food coloring to deepen the orange color.  Add orange zest if desired for more orange flavor.

Thoroughly spray a bundt pan with nonstick baking spray. Add large spoonfuls of batter until the pan is filled, then even out the surface. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove the pan from the oven and let it sit in the pan for 5 minutes. Carefully turn it out onto a cooling rack and let it cool completely.  

Here's a tip- place your cooling rack on top of a cookie sheet or tray.  That way when you drizzle your icing and OREOs in the next step, the tray will catch the extras and cleanup will be much easier!

Combine all the glaze ingredients in a bowl and gently whisk until thick (you might need to adjust the quantities here and there). Slowly pour to drizzle all over the cake.  Let the glaze set slightly, then sprinkle crushed OREOs on top.  Slice and serve!

Now I'm going to let you in on a little secret.  When I turned the cake out of the bundt pan, a good chunk of the top didn't come with it :(   I was able to peel it out and set it on top of the cake.  The icing and OREOs hide all flaws!  So, don't be intimidated to try a bundt cake if you've never done it before!  This is the perfect trial recipe!
