These chocolate suckers are a
great Halloween treat and you can dress them up as much as you want! Make them simple or
paint them with candy paints, either way they'll be the hit of the season!
1 bag any color chocolate melts
1 bag of sucker sticks
1 bag of sucker wrappers w/
Sucker molds of your choice
Disposable pastry bags
To melt the chocolate (Wilton's Candy Melts work
great), follow the directions on the back of the bag. The easiest way is to use a
disposable pastry bag. Fill it with the melts, tie off the open end and zap it in the
microwave. Squeeze the bag every few minutes as it melts to mix it.
Cut off the tip of the bag and fill each
sucker shape to the top. We used orange melts and jack-o-lantern molds. You can also
melt some yellow and brown melts and fill in the jack-o-lantern face before you fill with
orange. Just let the faces harden first, then fill.
When they are full,
insert the sticks, you may have to work them into the
chocolate a little and top it off to seal them in. They may
look a little bumpy but they will level out as the chocolate
settles. Place in your refrigerator to set.
You can also look for different molds that have witches,
skulls, etc and fill them accordingly. To remove after they are set, just lift by
the stick, they should easily pop right out. If they don't come out, just bend the mold
slightly, like getting ice from a tray. You can use candy paints or glazes at this time to add some color.
Or use decorating gel or frosting to add faces!
STORAGE & SERVING
For a Halloween party, serve on a large serving
tray or decorative plates. For treats, wrap individually in those little cellophane bags
for suckers. You can find orange ones during the Halloween season. A very tasty little treat! I guarantee
they'll disappear faster than a ghost in a graveyard!
