Candy Making Class

Thursday night I attended a candy making class with my small MOPS group. I had no clue what we were going to learn how to make, but it sounded like fun so I was in. First we learned how to make candy that was more than more color in molds. We learned how to paint the molds with colored chocolate to achieve the following results. After each color you have to let the mold set and dry. Therefore, this class lasted way longer that anyone had anticipated.

These were the first four candies that we made.

These are molds that have the shells of the candy drying and waiting for the next step of filling.

These are my finished candies from a night of learning and fun.

We learned how to dip various candies, pretzels, and cookies into chocolate. We learned how to make filled candies. We made eight filled candies such as: chocolate covered cherries, candies filled with caramel, raspberry filling, a nut filling, peanut butter cups, etc. I learned quite a bit about candy making. Now I have to buy supplies and get to work on making candies.
Take care,


  1. This sounds like lots of fun. I love going and trying new things, that is how I got my start at scrapbooking. Have a great Saturday!
