These easy sprinkle chocolate pops are a quick and delicious treat, a perfect fun food idea for any occasion.
Easy peasy sprinkle chocolate pops take minutes to make. You can serve or give these for birthdays, rainbow and unicorn parties, holidays (switch up the sprinkles), party favors, whatever. They fit in everywhere (unlike me in middle school, sigh, but I digress).
Once again, I pulled out my handy, dandy lollipop silicone mold. The silicone mold comes with lollipop sticks, but I often use my own, because I like longer sticks. The diameter is just a bit bigger than the mold’s sticks, but if you gently press into the grove, they fit just fine.
And now the question: White chocolate vs white candy melts?
I personally prefer using bright white candy melts instead of white chocolate, because candy melts are a brighter white, are user-friendly, melt easily, and harden quickly.
However, you can of course use white chocolate here instead. However, do not melt white chocolate chips directly in the decorating bag, as chocolate gets too hot.
Let it cool to the touch before transferring to the decorating bag. To set the chocolate more quickly, refrigerate the pops if you’re using white chocolate instead of candy melts.
how to make sprinkle chocolate pops
you will need:
- lollipop silicone mold
- lollipop sticks*
- white candy melts (white chocolate may be used)**
- disposable decorating bag
- rainbow sprinkles
*The silicone mold comes with small lollipop sticks, so you may not need to purchase additional sticks! I prefer to use my own, which have a slightly bigger diameter, but if you press into the grove, they can fit and work fine.
**See above for tips on using chocolate instead of white candy melts.
what to do:
Fill the decorating bag with white candy melts.
Microwave at 70 percent power for 90 seconds, massage the bag, and continue to microwave in 15-second intervals until the chips are about three-quarters melted.
Then, massage the bag and use the residual heat to melt the chips until the candy is smooth. If using white chocolate, melt in a bowl and then transfer to the decorating bag when it cools enough to handle.
Spoon sprinkles into the silicone mold cavities to cover the bottom. Snip the tip of the candy bag and pipe the melted candy to fill the cavities. Add a stick to each, turning to coat.
Let the candy fully harden (at least an hour, white chocolate will take longer and can be refrigerated). Remove from the mold.
Note that a bag of melted candy fills about six cavities.
