Candy Kit For Little Helpers

I came across this Candy Kit at the craft store the other day and I knew that my 5 year old would LOVE to make these. It looked easy enough and there was plenty that she would be able to do without too much help.  The kit comes with everything except for the marshmallows. You don’t actually have to buy a kit in order to make these because the craft stores sell these chocolate moulds, melting chocolate and other items separately. If you don’t have marshmallows, you could use mini donut holes, or make your own cake pops or cheesecake pops…

The kit came with 3 colours of chocolate and 3 disposable piping bags. Start by placing the melting chocolates in their own liners. microwave them one at a time until the chocolate is melted. Cut a small tip off each bag and start piping the chocolate into the plastic candy moulds. These 2 trays also came with the kit. Tap the trays on the counter to get rid of air bubbles and level out the chocolate. 

Add a stick to each chocolate slot and place the trays in the fridge to harden for about 30 minutes. Turn the trays upside down and gently pop them out onto the counter. Grab a marshmallow and slide it up the stick. Re-heat the white and yellow chocolate bags and use them to cover the marshmallows in chocolate. Tap the excess chocolate off into a bowl.  Add the wings to the bird, and the facial features to the bunnies. Push them into a block of styrofoam to dry.

Lizzy and I enjoyed doing this together, and she REALLY enjoyed eating the white chocolate bunnies.

Enjoy!
