The sweet smell of pumpkin and crisp fall leaves – Thanksgiving is right around the corner. If you are like me, you’re on the hunt for the perfect treat to share with your family and friends. Cupcakes adorned with Candy Melts® candy toppers are sure to be a favorite! Let me show you how easy it is!
What you’ll need:
- Candy Melts® Candy (I chose orange, light cocoa and dark green.)
- Your Favorite Iced Cupcakes
- Maple Leaf Cookie Cutter
- Lollipop Stick
- Spoons (one for each color)
- Parchment Paper or Parchment Sheets
To start out, you’ll want to melt your Candy Melts in a microwave-safe bowl at half power, for 30-second increments, stirring at each interval until fully melted.
Place your cookie cutter on top of a parchment lined cookie sheet (or cake board). Scoop a small spoonful of each candy color into the cookie cutter.
Then, gently drag a lollipop stick through the Candy Melts to marbleize. Be careful not to overmix!
Once you’ve reached the desired look, place the cookie cutter into the fridge for 10-15 minutes or until the Candy Melts have hardened. Gently press on the candy to release it from the cookie cutter.
Now just place your adorable treat into your iced cupcake. Look at that beautiful Thanksgiving cupcake! Best of all, it was so quick and easy to make!
