Project: Manatee Lollipop
I got these sweet candy molds today. I know it's hard to see what they will be but stick with me. I thought they would be metal or something a bit more durable than a sheet of plastic and that I'd be able to make some hard-candy lollipops. But chocolate lollipops are just as delicious, no?
I put the lollipop sticks in (got a huge pack for a few dollars at Michael's)
I also got some melting chocolate wafers there. They come in just about every color of the rainbow! Purple seemed nice.
I poured the melted chocolate into the molds. And kinda sloppily smooshed/smoothed the top. Have to work on that technique.
Let it harden for a few hours, and voila! A mama and baby manatee lollipop. OK, it's not super pretty yet. But a few more attempts and they'll be lovely!
