Chocolate sucker tutorial


First time for me, making these and they are so easy ....


Mold, ready to use, candy flavored chocolate, sucker sticks...We had strawberry and chocolate flavors...


First, rub some vegetable oil with a paper towel in the mold....



Microwave the candy for 1 minute...do not add anything to it....When liquid...Poor in mold and tap the mold down to spread. Put the sticks first....



Repeat and place in fridge...




The kids loved it... They went fast...
Great craft idea to make with the kids for a Party or boring Saturday...



Fairy Party......HERE

I wasn't ready for that and did a double take when I saw you actually made those candy suckers. I also took a peek at your 10 year old's birthday party and the pictures were wonderful and I love the little fairy garden in the glass. I'm also looking forward to the log cake tutorial. Anyway, I'm your newest follower here from the FF blog hop and I'm honestly glad I found your truly authentic blog.

Hope you'll come visit my blog and return the follow. Thanks!

These came out so cute! When I make them, I usually add a little more of the melted candy over the stick, just to make sure they are secure. We make them a lot. So easy and fun!!

Sophia said...

You're fairy looks just like the child I would dream that I would have when "I grow up" How frightfully fun! My kids turned out totally different looking than I would day/nightdream they would!

Dark curly hair, big blue eyes, and milky soft skin! Like a doll!

What blessings!! So do your chickens lay your own eggs and eventually provide you with free-range hormone free meat? Or are they just for petting and chasing around?
You're beautiful! xxoo

Hi Frenchy...

Ohhh...I've seen that kind of candy before but have never tried melting it and pouring it into molds! I love how it turned out...pretty butterfly suckers and I bet they were really yummy! Oh yes...I'm sure that they didn't last long with the kids! Hehe! Thanks so much for sharing your pretty suckers and the "how to's" with us for Sunday Favorites this week...a real treat, my friend!

I do apologize at being so late to get by for a visit but I'm still trying to catch up after being away all weekend! So happy to see you for Sunday Favorites, sweet lady!
