Pink Candy Favors

Making candy using molds couldn't be easier and never fails to impress guests. The candy molds and candy melts can be purchased at any number of craft stores in the cake supply aisle. The molds start as low as $1.39 and are reusable. They come in a huge variety of designs. I got the candy melts on sale 2 bags for 5 dollars and they come in an array of colors. One bag of candy melts made over 100 candies. Two things to remember when making candy: #1 - microwave on 50% power, chocolate burns easily. #2 - Chocolate and water don't mix, so don't try to thin it or anything with water, that equals a big mess!! You don't have to have one, but the squeeze bottle is neater and makes things a lot easier.


Melt Chocolate in the microwave in the bottle according to package directions:


Using the squeeze bottle, fill the molds 3/4 way to the top. Pat the molds evenly on counter to spread the chocolate. Stick the mold in the freezer for about 3 minutes. Turn out the choclates. It is that simple.


Aren't they pretty? Don't know if you can see the detail, but there are pacifiers, bottles, rattles, rocking horses, diaper pins and booties.


I packaged these in little tins with a sticker of baby feet on top for favors!

They are so cute. But the real question is - do they taste good?? Pioneer Woman used those to make those Halloween cake balls. And I am just a little afraid of colored chocolate...

It can't possibly be that easy, can it?! I think I could even handle that! Guess I need to run to Hobby Lobby this weekend!
