Butterscotch Owl Pops September 28 2012, 1 Comment

Owls, butterscotch and autumn just seem to go together don't you think? Every autumn I get the urge to make things featuring woodland animals!

This is my first time working with butterscotch candy melts, new to our shop this year, and oh my.. they are so incredibly sweet and yummy! Perfect for these little owls! I found the butterscotch candy melts a bit stiffer when melted than others, so I would consider them much more ideal for molding rather than dipping.

I think my very favorite use for bakers twine is tying sweet bows on chocolate lollipops!

So adorable!

Follow our Basic Chocolate Molding Tutorial if you’re new to chocolate molding.

Tips: Roll the lollipop stick once in the mold to coat the whole top of the stick with chocolate, this makes the stick more secure. Get yourself more than one mold if you plan to make a lot, waiting for the chocolate to harden can become time consuming.

Orange Chocolate Owl Pops November 22 2010, 4 Comments

Aren't these chocolate owls just so cute and 1960's looking!  We are super happy with how they turned out.. its kitsch on a stick!

We didn't take any  "in process" pictures of these beauties because they were just so easy.  You just melt your Orange Candy Melts, add a drop of Orange Flavoring Oil, pour your melted candy melts into a Disposable Decorating Bag, and pipe into your Owl Lollipop Chocolate Mold.  Add your Lollipop Sticks and place in the freezer for a few minutes until they pop right out when inverted.

For more detailed instructions check out our Chocolate Mold Tutorial.

These owls would look great in any color, but we think this orange is just perfect for Thanksgiving!

Ooo.. they would probably be extra cute with a little Cappuccino Brown Bakers Twine bow tied around the stick!

These little owl friends make us smile!
