Grab Their Attention With Skeleton Candy Treats

October 26th, 2010 by Paula Ivancicts

Create a spooky look that’s definitely more treat than trick. The Skeleton Bones Candy Mold and Spooky Green Halloween Candy Melts® are great for creating quick and easy 3D skeletons.

Fill a disposable decorating bag with Spooky Green Halloween Candy Melts®. Place the bag on the Copco Microwave Tray. Melt the candy in your microwave on defrost setting for short intervals, press to blend. Microwave more, if needed. Snip off a tiny piece of the disposable bag bottom.

Squeeze the melted candy into the Skeleton Bones Candy Mold. Be sure to tap the mold up and down on a table or counter to remove air bubbles. This mold takes a little maneuvering as the skull is deeper set in the mold, but without tapping the mold you will get air bubbles. The decorating bag works great for filling small areas like the little bones! Place the filled mold in the refrigerator until candy has set.

Here’s the green skeleton pushed inside a chocolate cupcake. Crumble part of another cupcake on top for the dirt effect.

Boneyard Brownies and Rise and Shine Candy are two other fun ideas using the skeleton bones candy mold.

  1. I think this has convinced me to get into chocolate molds!!! So.. No tempering required? Just melt and then let set? Do you need to dust the mold with anything?

  2. My first summer job was making candy. I have to say I am completely jealous of your melt and pour chocolates! It would have made parts of that job a little easier 😛
