Easy to Make Candy Pops

Candy pops are simple to make. You just need a mold, sticks, and candy melts

Follow instructions on the candy melts to make them in the microwave. It took me about 1.5 minutes at 50% power to melt enough candy melts to make 4 pops.

These are simple enough that you can get the kids involved in  placing in the sticks, and even scooping in the melted candy (if you don't make the mixture too hot.)

Let the pops cool (you can pop them in the freezer or fridge to make them harden faster), but they really don't take all that long to harden if left on the counter. Don't worry about going over the edges. That stuff that goes over will be easily broken off when you pop them out.

And there you have your own semi-homemade candy pops.  What is great about making your own is that you can  buy molds in so many different things. You can buy them in the pop form, like I did for these or just in a regular candy form. You can buy flavors to add to the melts, you can buy candy melts in a variety of colors or in just plain chocolate or white chocolate. You can customize these to virtually any occasion.

These ones I made to includes the in fabric valentine envelopes I made for my kids with the valentine puzzle card.
