how to make donut candy pops
you will need:*
light brown candy melts (peanut butter flavor used here)
pink candy melts
2 disposable decorating bags
*Find the candy melts, decorating bags, lollipops ticks and sprinkles in the craft store, or see below.
what to do:
Line a baking tray with wax paper and set aside. Fill a disposable decorating bag with about 1/2 cup of the light brown candy melts. Melt the light brown candy melts for 90 seconds at 70 percent power in the microwave. Massage the bag and continue to microwave, if needed, for 15 second intervals until fully melted.
Snip 1/2 inch from the tip of the bag. Pipe a dot on the tray and place a lollipop stick on the dot. Pipe a thick circle on top for the donut, about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Fill the tray and let the candy melts harden, 15 to 30 minutes.
Melt the pink candy melts and pipe the “icing” on top of the brown circles. Immediately sprinkle with some sprinkles. Let set.
