Candy Jewel Pops

Candy Jewel Pops

I shape cake pops all the time by hand, but you can also use some candy molds to help you make them. So, today I thought I’d show you a fun way to use the Gems Mold from my product line with Make’n Mold that came out last year. I love how cute and perfect they turn out.

Bakerella for Make'n Mold

The flexible silicone mold makes six different shapes.

Bakerella Wafers

I went with three of my bright candy wafer colors to make these.

Candy Pops

I love the Sunny Yellow, but they look really great in just plain white, too.

You can make solid candy pops by simply filling the molds completely with melted candy wafers and inserting a lollipop stick after the coating starts to set a little.

Cake Pop Jewels

To prepare the molds for cake pops, fill each cavity with melted candy coating.

Then turn the entire mold upside down and let the excess coating fall back out onto a wax paper-covered baking sheet. You may need to gently shake it a little to help it fall.

This is an easy way to make sure that the entire inside of the mold gets coated. And when the excess coating on the wax paper starts to set, you can remove it to reheat.

Let dry completely or place the mold in the refrigerator to help set quickly.

Cake Pop Jewels

Now that you have an outer shell, press cake pop mixture into the coated cavity leaving enough room on top for more melted coating to seal and also touch and attach to the coating already on the inside of the cavity.

Before the coating starts to set, insert a cake pop stick straight in.

Place the mold back in the refrigerator to set again.

To remove pops, gently separate the lip of the mold from the candy and then carefully push the shape out of the mold from the bottom.

Keep in mind that if you shake out too much coating in the beginning, leaving a thin shell, that the pop may break when removing.

Coated Sunflower Seeds

You can also use the same technique to fill the mold with small candy like these coated sunflower seeds.

Surprise Inside Jewels

Just let your recipients know there’s something fun to expect inside… and maybe give them a bowl ; ), so when they bite in they don’t make a mess.

Jewel Candies

I probably wouldn’t make these into pops though. Just serve them as standalone surprise inside candies.

Enjoy!
