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…
Egg Shaped Lollipop Molds
Small Bowl or Pyrex Measuring Cup (needs to be microwave safe)
Piping Bag and Tip (optional)
Wax or Parchment Paper
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.
