Valentine's Day Lollipops/Mon. Blog Hop

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY EVERYBODY!!

I hope each & every one of you have a
great one..

For Valentine's Day I made Chocolate
Lollipops for my husband kids at school.

This is how they turned out. I wanted to do
hearts but could not find the mold for them so
I made Smiley Faces (I was going to do their
faces with frosting but time was limited)

Here is the tutorial for you below..Easy/Fun


These are the supplies needed for what I did:

For Lollipops:
Mold for candy
1 bag Candy Melts (Michael's or Walmart)
lollipops plastic bags to cover
lollipop sticks (Michael's or Walmart)
For Basket
Oasis (Green Foam for lollipops to stand up on)
wire
wire cutters
colored grass
ribbon

1) Start out with putting the oasis in the
basket & securing it with the wire. (Place
around oasis & twist wire underneath &
curve back towards basket so it will not
polk anything) Put Grass all around the
oasis.


2) Below are the candy melts in a bowl. This
is the amount I usually do at one time.

3) Microwave 1 min on high. Below is
how they look after 1 min. My microwave
is 1100Watts (You may have to adjust
your time for a lower wattage microwave)


4) I usually do another 20 sec. on high &
this is how it should look. Smooth & shiny..


5) I take a teaspoon & spoon into
each mold..this is how it looks before
you tap it on the counter.

6) This is how it looks after you
tap it gently on the counter. They
even out. I put them in the freezer
until they get hard (about 10-15 min)

7) To FINISH I turn them over on to
a piece of wax paper or parchment paper
& put them in the lollipop bags & tie with
curling ribbon. Then just place them in the
already prepared basket & they are ready
for giving. DONE..ENJOY!

These are really cute with BUNNY MOLDS
