Have you used these? What for?

I am doing a Minnie Mouse bday for my daughter (2nd bday) & I was gonna buy the minnie mouse mold & Candy melts to make suckers. Not gonna get fancy with colors on the suckers but, How easy is it to add color?


Thanks!!!! <3


Edit #2:::: I ended up buying this one

and i may end up buying just the head of her :) But they only one i can find says Mickey on it. Why would they put Mickey on Minnie? Anyone know? If all else fails with this one, I will just do her in all pink and do a red bow or vice versa :) Either way, It will be cute! Today i did some stars & hearts, I am in love! <3 I could do this allday everyday :)

you can actually get melts in almost any color and thats your best bet honestly. they sell squeeze bottles to melt in as well that way you can inject the colors into the parts of the mold that you need to neatly. dificulty wise? mu dd has been making candies with them since she was 3 she now 8

you dont have to wait. you can put the colord melts on top of eachother. unless you physically mix them yourself, they wont blend. like say you are making snowmen candies. you can put the black in for the eyes mouth and buttons, orange for carrot nose, red for a scarf then cover it all in white and it wont blend.

so put the white on top of the colors? do i wait for the colors to harden? and this can all be done by just buying a few bottles to help seperate colors? are those Candy melts that good?

The Candy melts harden pretty quickly.  Just remember to wash out the tips of the bottles before it hardens and clogs it.

They sell the bottles almost anywhere, but yes, I did see them at Walmart the other day actually.  It's by Wilton.

I use Candy Melts to make cake pops.

I would use the colored candy melts that christababy is suggesting. Otherwise, if you use just plain white almond bark and add food coloring......it will mess the melted almond bark up and make it hard and impossible to warm back up to the consistency you would need. I guess you could say that they "chemicals" don't mix together. I've tried it way too many times lol...........I keep doing it and keep forgetting

I'm definitely going with Candy Melts prolly multi color also. Idk how hard Minnie would be though. Pretty detailed?
