Valentines smooches?

It’s kinda silly how excited I am about this next project… and for good reason. Not only do I love candy, but I wear lipstick for almost every occasion. Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I thought I’d make some sweet treats to send to my loved ones, and boy do these chocolate lollipop lips deliver. Check out the tutorial below.

What you’ll need: Colored molding chocolate (I chose pink and red, as that screamed V-Day the most to me), candy mold of your choice (these luscious lips? I just couldn’t pass them up), microwave-safe bowl (unless you plan on using a double boiler), lollipop sticks. SAMSUNG CSC

To melt chocolate: Place in microwave-safe bowl, and heat for 30 seconds on low power. Stir. Continue reheating in intervals of 15-30 seconds until fully melted.SAMSUNG CSC

To mold chocolate: Fill mold cavity with the melted chocolate. Add lollipop sticks. Gently tap mold to release any air bubbles. SAMSUNG CSC

Lick extra chocolate from spoon and bowl, naturally.

Place filled mold in refrigerator for 10-15 minutes, or until chocolate is firm. Release hardened chocolate by inverting mold. If chocolate does not release, return to fridge for 3-5 minutes.  SAMSUNG CSC

Repeat the process with your secondary color.  SAMSUNG CSC

To add the finishing touch, use mini clear candy bags to wrap up your chocolates!

Honestly, I could take this candy bouquet any day! This project was SO easy, so much in fact, I want to make more and experiment with different candy molds. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed here, give it a try and let me know how it goes! SAMSUNG CSC
