If you remove the wrappers while the candies are room temperature, the sides sometimes come off with the wrapper like this. But that’s okay, because these rejects taste good.
After you unwrap them, place all the cups on a sheet of wax paper and let them get back to room temperature. When the chill is gone, dip the end of your lollipop stick in some melted candy coating and carefully insert into the candy cups. If they are too cold, the cups will split apart. Just insert the sticks about halfway and let dry.
But, wait a minute. What if you don’t want brown graduation caps?
Or maybe you’re just dying to do the whole cake pop thing. Well, you’re in luck.
Grab some colored candy melts and get your hands on one of these square candy molds .
Then, cover the exposed areas with more melted candy coating. When covered, insert lollipop sticks about halfway in. By the way, using chilled cake balls here helps the sticks stand up straight when you insert them. Then place these in the freezer for a few minutes and when dry, they’ll pop out relatively easy. Don’t try to pull them out by the sticks, though. Push them out by pressing on the mold underneath.
Then, you can glue everything on. Instead of rainbow chip sprinkles, use a mini-size m&m because these hats are larger in size than the Reese’s version.
And there you have it… Colored Candy Covered Cake Ball Caps!
P.S. If you can’t find Airheads Extremes Rainbow Berry Sour Belts, then try pull apart Twizzlers. They are bigger and round, but if you cut them in half, I think you can glue them, flat side down.
