'Toad'ally Cool Pencil Pops

Posted by  ·  February 8, 2010  ·  Last Updated: February 8, 2010

I have talked about pencil pops before. I think they make the best party favors. They work great for hard candy suckers …

or melted candy coating.

Supplies:

Candy coating
pencil pops
valentine pencils
plastic bags
ribbon
candy molds (mold need to have a place for the plastic pencil pop, see picture)

Directions:

Place plastic pencil pops into mold.

Melt candy coating slowly in microwave.  It is important to not overheat as it will scorch. I used about 38 candy disks to fill the mold of six frogs. Fill molds.

Gently tap mold to make sure there are no air bubbles and candy coating has completely filled the mold.

Allow to completely cool and harden. Remove from molds.

Place small plastic bag over candy from and tie with a ribbon.  Labels can be made by downloading tag, printing on paper, cutting them out and wrapping around pencil and fastening with glue stick.

The same molds could be used to make gummi frogs. How about placing some in a baggie and stapling a tag to the top. Learn how to make Homemade Gummi Candy here.

    This is the funnest idea! I love it. If only I could get to the store to buy a mold- it's snowing here in Pittsburgh, big time.

    If you'd like, I'm hosting my very first Link Party today. And you are welcome to link up this craft!

    just a thought...I could try to melt crayons in the molds and top the pencils with rainbow crayons...you have me thinking and I like that :)

    I love making candy pops and when I first saw they made the attachments for pencils I was so excited and a few days later got word that our schools no longer allow home baked goods (the law went into effect state wide as well) and I never made them :( Yours look great! I have a large collection of candy molds and now only make them once in a while, used to make them each month.
