Candy-A-Thon

I Got This Martha: Candy-A-Thon

So I opened up the candy shop last Friday.  I made some chocolate suckers for a very special little girl’s 1st birthday party.  My BFF (Jess) had her little girl’s (Anna Mae) 1st birthday party at my house on Saturday.  It was so much fun, and the party was just beautiful.  I am planning to post more about the party later on in the week.

I volunteered to make chocolate suckers for the party favors.  Jess was my assistant candy maker, and we had a blast.  There was a lot of snickering and snorting going on.  It was a candy-a-thon that lasted about 6 hours.

First, we melted the colored chocolate using my warming tray.

 

Using a paint brush, we painted in the detailed areas of the party hat mold.  Then we popped the mold into the freezer to get hard.

After we removed the mold from the freezer, we filled the rest of the mold with chocolate.  We added the sucker sticks, and then back into the freezer they went.

 

The party hat mold had three holes on the front.  So we put a small dot of the melted chocolate in the hole, and then placed a M & M on top of it.

 

We tied up the suckers with the cutest red and white bakers twine.  Jess’s husband made a tag with a picture of Anna Mae on it.  They used the same picture for the invitations. I had two small yellow flower pots that we used to display the suckers.  We just stuck some florist foam down in the pots, and then stuck the suckers into the foam.  We used some shredded green paper to cover the florist foam.

I just love the bright colors of the candy.  These are the most detailed suckers that I have made to date.  I am so proud of them, and it was so much fun having Jess help me make them.  Maybe candy making is my true calling?!
