If you have been around a while at Mom Collaborative you know candy melt candy is one of our favorite ways to get creative! These candy pops, in particular, are easy for kiddos to do too! I hope you have a spooktacular good time!
How To Make DIY Halloween Candy Pops:
Before you begin making your own Halloween Candy Pops I want to mention that the templates I made for the monsters, ghosts, and jack-o-lanterns are meant to be used as a guide. Older kids, like say 7 and up can probably follow the lines on the templates slightly better than say a 6-year-old or younger child, so keep that in mind as you do this project with your little ones. I also feel like this project goes best working with one kiddo at a time as the candy melts have to be kept warm and depending on how many color options your kids are using it just makes it easier. This is a messy project for younger kids but can be kept tidy with older kids who can manage the baggies with the melted candy much easier. Please supervise this project as the candy melts can get hot!
What You Need:
- Free Halloween Candy Templates (Ghosts, Monsters, & Jack-O-Lanterns)
- White Candy Melts or white chocolate chips
- Food Coloring
- Lollipop Sticks
- Candy Google Eyes
- Plastic Baggie
What You Do:
- Print out my free templates of your choice (See end of post)
- Lay candy template under wax paper
- melt 1cup of white candy melts with 2 tsp of Crisco (without Crisco the candies will harden when mixed with food coloring so be sure to add the Crisco) I melt them 30 seconds at a time in the microwave (May double this recipe)
- Mix in any color of food coloring you choose. Leave white for ghosts.
- Leave some colored candy melts aside to attach the lollipop sticks at the end
- Using a short cup open up the sandwich sized baggie and carefully pour the candy melts into the corner of the baggie. Twist baggie releasing any air and zip close
- Allow the candy melts to sit for about a minute or so, so that it isn’t runny nor hardened
- Allow your child to outline the candy templates and then fill in as they wish
- Top with candy eyes
- If you have left any portions of your candies open like in the case of the Jack-O-Lantern, you will want to let the candy harden and then fill it in with the second color
- Once all of your candies in that same color are done let the candy harden
- Then using your same colored candy melt you had set aside/reheat 30 seconds at a time (See above) dip or roll the lollipop stick in the melt and then center it on the back of the candy.
- If the eyes cause your candy to tip when you put the stick on, just brace it up against another candy….it will secure in just a minute or 2.
- That is it!
I hope you and your little ones enjoy this fun Halloween candy craft!
