Butter Scotch candy + Funfetti Cupcakes = Yumminess!

Hello everybody!

I hope you guys are well.

I made funfetti cupcakes with butter scotch candy toppers for Valentine’s Day for my family.  It’s semi-homemade, of course, but here’s what I did:

Combine ingredients for cake mix and add sprinkles.

While the cupcakes are baking, melt butter scotch candy (found this at AC Moore craft store) in your microwave and fill candy mold.  Place into freezer for about ten minutes.

I also melted Dolci Frutta chocolate and placed a dollop on each cupcake, then stuck one of the candies on top and placed into the refrigerator for a few minutes so the chocolate could harden.

My valentine cupcakes, but you can always make these for any day.

Take good care all.

Until next time…

DIY CHOCOLATE LOLLIPOPS

Hello everybody! I hope you guys are well.  I am pretty well-known in my family to do chocolate lollipops with the help of candy molds.  I have a “small” collection of candy molds and I used to make them a lot for family and friends before I had kids.  Now, I make them once and awhile.  I decided to surprise my daughter with an after dinner treat.  Check out my process, it’s pretty simple:

From my collection, I chose a heart-shaped lollipop mold with the word Love scripted in the middle, vanilla chocolate candy wafers, and a small bowl to melt the chocolate in.

I melt my chocolate in the microwave.  Make sure you don’t put it on high or the chocolate will burn.

With a small spoon, pour the chocolate into the mold.

Pick up your mold and tap it against the counter until your chocolate spreads out evenly.

You can add lollipop sticks or not.

Put the candy mold in your freezer for about 10 to 15 minutes.

Enjoy!

You can buy candy wafers in different colors.  I’m going to get them in red and using this candy mold make some lollipops for Valentine’s Day.

My sister and I are currently looking for a theme for our brother’s 30th birthday party.  We’re leaning towards a mustache party and while browsing through Pinterest, of course, I came across this:

Isn’t that awesome?  I’m definitely going to be on the lookout for this candy mold, just in case.

Take care all.

Until next time…
