Today is the last day of January, but it’s still winter! So, it’s not too late to make snowflakes … is it?
Last Sunday my friend hosted a party … Brunch & Blankets … we ate brunch and made blankets for Project Linus.
Project Linus distributes “comfort blankets” to children (babies thru teenagers) in need of a hug … maybe in a hospital, shelter, etc. The blankets are truly needed and appreciated.
The snowflake pops were just a “thank you” for the ladies that attended and helped make the blankets.
I’m sure that many of you have melted candy melts or chocolate, poured them in plastic molds and have made some beautiful creations! I just thought that I would share how simple these snowflakes were to make! The molds have great detail and the sparkly Disco Dust brings the bling!
This is what you will need …
Here we go with easy peasy directions …
- Spoon the melted candy in each cavity of the mold, being careful not to overfill. Tap the mold on the counter to smooth out the candy and free any air bubbles.
- Carefully lift the mold up so that you may see if there are any air bubbles. If you find bubbles use a toothpick to release them.
- Insert the lollipop stick. My stick is too long, so I let it extend out.
- Rotate the stick so that it is covered in candy. Chill until candy is firm … freezer about 10 minutes, refrigerator about 20 minutes.
- Snowflakes should release from mold easily … if they don’t, they need a few more minutes chilling.
- Now for the sparkly part … work on parchment paper to catch extra Disco Dust. Dip the tip of your brush in the dust and tap or brush the dust on the candy. Don’t forget to use the extra dust that ends up on the parchment.
Easy peasy …
I was taking photos with a variety of lighting so that you could see the sparkly stuff … sorry for some of the weird coloring ;)
