Happy Friday Everyone!
Ok, so last night I wanted to try something that I havent been successful doing in the past, that something is making candy. 2 years ago I attempted chocolate truffles from scratch and it didn’t go very well. People now refer to that Holiday season as, “The year Jess tried to make truffles”. Lol, ok I get it! However, I came back last night with a vengeance and discovered whats possibly the EASIEST AND MOST COST EFFICIENT way to make candy EVER.
Note: These candies make the perfect inexpensive home-made gifts and party favors.
Vanilla Flavored Candy:
What You’ll Need (all purchased @Joannes Fabric, but depending where you purchase your supplies, prices may vary):
(1) Candy mold of your choice ($1.99)
(1) Bag of Wilton’s Candy Melts (Any Color & Flavors are fine) ($2.99)
Optional: (1) Bag of Wilton Disposable Candy Decorating Bag ($4.99), Foil Candy Wrappers ($1.50)
Prep Time: 2 MINS
Active Time: 5 MINS
Step 1: Fill a microwavable bowl (or microwave safe container) with Wilton’s Candy Melts. (The directions call for a whole bag, but i only used a handful and they filled a whole candy tray).
Step 2: Place bowl in the microwave (or container) for on 50% power or the defrost setting for 1 minute. *Note: not all the pieces will be fully melted and that’s okay.
Step 3: Stir and place back into the microwave for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Once the candy is fully melted, stir well and pour into candy mold (please excuse the water droplets in the picture, i had just washed these, i highly recommend you fully dry the mold before use to avoid air pockets).
Step 5: Tap molds to let out all the air pockets, then place in the refrigerator until the molds look frosty or the candies are firm.
Step 6: Enjoy!
