Spring Inspired Lollipops

Today, I’m sharing a simple Spring Inspired Lollipop that takes minutes to make and doesn’t require a lot of fancy equipment. In fact, it takes longer for the lollipops to set in the refrigerator than it does to mix the candy melts.

We’re always looking for something quick yet festive to have out this time of year especially on Easter Sunday when we create a grab and go breakfast bar or a dessert bar filled with all sorts of pastel colored candy in the afternoon.

I know some of you might be home this week with the littles for Spring Break. While others of you might be hosting Easter brunch or will be having company visiting this season. This is such a fun time of year for hanging out with friends, family, neighbors or coworkers especially when the weather is nice.

My mom actually put these candy molds in our Easter basket last year so I was super excited to finally be able to try my hand at making some spring inspired lollipops this year. Here’s a look at all the details and how you can make your own…

SUPPLIES:

Egg Shaped Lollipop Molds

Candy Melts

Small Bowl or Pyrex Measuring Cup (needs to be microwave safe)

Spoon

Piping Bag and Tip (optional)

Cookie Sheet

Wax or Parchment Paper

STEPS:

Place wax or parchment paper on top of a cookie sheet.

Prepare the candy melts as per the instructions on the back of the package.

I put these candy melts in the microwave for about a minute then gave it a good stir and put it back in the microwave for an additional 30 seconds until the candy melts were smooth and fully incorporated.

Using caution and care as candy melts will be hot, spoon candy melts into the piping bag.

Pipe melted candy into each lollipop mold.

You can also just spoon the melted candy melts directly into the mold. There were actually less air bubbles that way.

Tap the side of the mold to remove any air bubbles. Insert lollipop sticks.

Place the candy filled egg shaped lollipop molds in the refrigerator until candy melts have set.

After molds have set, take the lollipops out of the refrigerator and

turn them upside down.

Gently tap the mold on the table in order to release the lollipops.

I don’t know why but I kind of thought the mold would have candy bits all over it but it came out super clean!

Is that crazy easy or what!

You can decorate them with other candy melt colors if you like or you might even want to try a colored gel. They have all sorts of pretty embellishments in the cake and candy decorating aisle of the craft supply store so you can make these spring inspired lollipops as festive as you want them to be!

The front looks pretty good but I’ll definitely need to practice smoothing out the back a more. Thankfully, they’re so tasty I don’t think they’ll be on display for very long.

Let me know if you guys try these! I love it when we share recipes and baking tips with each other. Especially super easy ideas like these spring inspired lollipops!

See you guys back here tomorrow. I’ll have a brand-new video for you and this one is definitely personal as we weigh our blessings list against our busy list. I’ll share the one event that happened just before my grandparents’ death that has haunted me for almost a year now.  If you feel overwhelmed by your goals, exhausted by your daily to do list or just feel completely off track, this post is for you! Until next time, I’ll see you on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest.

Many blessings,

CoCo

  1. These are really cute, Coco. What flavor is this? Can you use these like coffee spoons? Thanks,

    1. Thank you, Sarah! These are vanilla flavored even the pink ones but they also have chocolate so look for that one. I’ve also seen an almond flavor and a mint flavor but not at all craft supply stores. I don’t know if you would want to use these as coffee spoons or not only because they’re pretty thick so that would be a lot of sugar ha ha. I’ll leave that decision up to you though. Hugs, CoCo

  2. They look so pretty and festive. I may have to give this a try!

    1. Thanks so much, Robyn. They were a lot easier than I expected them to be and you can find the candy melts in a lot different colors and flavors. Let us know how they work out for you if you decide to try them. We love to learn new tips and tricks from you guys. Sending you hugs for a fabulous day, CoCo

  3. Woa are these really that easy Coco? Where did your mom get the candy mold?

    1. Yes, they are! Spooning them in was a lot easier than using the piping bag to be honest and I thought they came out a lot smoother too. I think my Mom got the candy mold at Target last year but S found similar style candy molds at Michaels so try to check there as well. They’ll be down the cake decorating and candy making aisle. Send us a picture if you do this, ok? Hugs, CoCo

  4. The girls are going to love these, Coco, thanks for the great idea.

    1. Aww thanks Ashley! They have lots of different flavors and colors too so be sure to look for them. Hugs, CoCo

  5. Stop it! We had no idea making these cute candy pops could be so easy! You are always teaching us the neatest and newest things from the kitchen. Thanks so much CoCo! We know you had a lot of happy people in your home with these sweet treats!

    1. Were you guys shocked at how clean the molds came out? I couldn’t believe how easy it was – it definitely opens up so many possibilities for entertaining especially with grab and go gifts! Hugs, CoCo
