    No, I believe you take the toothpicks out. I think they are just used as "handles" so you can dip them in the chocolate, etc.

    Thank you! My mind isn't thinking to clearly this morning and after a couple hours of thinking about those tooth picks I thought I should just ask! So glad someone posted the pumpkin tip this morning also! Just not thinking clearly and really need to start on those pumpkins right away!
