One of our most popular candy molds came back in stock a couple weeks ago and we are so excited to make some chocolate popsicles in them! This fun silicone mini popsicle candy mold makes the cutest popsicle shapes. Use it to make chocolates, popsicle ice cubes, popsicle truffles and even little popsicle soaps! If you prefer ice cream cones we have a silicone mini ice cream candy mold too!

Chocolate Popsicle Candies Ombre Style

Step 1: Melt about 1/8 cup of white chocolate per package instructions. Heat slow and on a low setting if using a microwave as white chocolate overheats easily making it thick and gloppy. If you find that happens add a little paramount crystals to thin out your chocolate. The first batch of chocolate that is being melting will be split up and dyed using the candy colors of your choice, we used rose and peach.

Step 2: Once the chocolate is fully melted add about a tablespoon to 4 small containers that are microwave save (if it hardens you want to be able to heat it back up). You'll be making 2 shades of pink and 2 shades of peach so you can create an ombre look on the top of your popsicles. Set aside once you are painting all of the popsicle cavities.

Step 3: Using one of the medium sized soft bristle paint brushes paint some of the colored chocolate onto just the bottom of the cavity. We made some that had 4 colors done in stripes and some in 2 colors. Get creative and have fun painting! Once you have all the bottoms painted use a small spoon to lightly scrape off the chocolate on the center ridged of the mold. This will let the white color that you will fill the rest of the mold up with show through giving the candies extra detail.

Time to give your chocolate popsicles some flavor!

Step 4: Heat up more white chocolate, about 1/2 - 2/3 cup should give you enough to fill the cavities of the popsicle mold. Once fully melted divide the chocolate into 2 small bowls if you want to make 2 flavors. We make orange cream and lemon using Lorann Flavoring. It's super concentrated so only use a drop so it doesn't get overpowering. Add 1 drop of orange cream oil to one bowl and a drop of lemon oil to the other, stir well. If it gets thick add a tiny piece of paramount crystals to thin it out. The chocolate needs to be fluid enough to pour into the popsicle mold. Place each flavor into its own disposable piping bag and then pipe into the cavities of the mold.

Step 4: To make sure our painted ombre detail showed on the chocolates we left the chocolate white. Fill half the popsicle cavities with one flavor and the rest with the other. Place the candy mold on a baking sheet and tap the sheet on a flat surface a few times to push any air bubbles up to the surface. Pop them in the fridge or freezer for 10-20 minutes. The colder they are the easier they come out of the mold.

TIP: If you want to add an extra detail you can sprinkle on some sprinkles like sanding sugar or nonpareils to the backs of the chocolates after you fill each cavity of the mold. If you try this don't fill the mold to the top, leave a small recess so there is a place you can add your sprinkles.
