Hi folks! Does that image above look yummy or what??!! Recently, I made back to back lollipop favors! The first time I tried this was for my best friend, Marjorie’s, daughter’s baptism. Marjorie sent me a pin of an image she liked with little cross lollipop favors. Here’s the link to that image. I had never done anything like this before so I was a bit nervous. I searched on YouTube for videos on how to create chocolate lollipops. How do I melt them? Do I add water? I mean, what the heck is the process for this? I remembered last summer, for hubby Henry’s birthday, I tried to make chocolate-covered strawberries using fondue . Didn’t work. I don’t tknow what I did wrong there, but that chocolate got really weird, really fast!
So, for this project I said, “You can’t mess this up!” So I did my research. Turns out, making white chocolate lollipop favors is super easy!
Here are the favors I did for Marjorie:
When Marjorie’s cousin, Nadine, saw those favors she messaged me and told me they were gorgeous. So I offered to make them for her as well and it turned out wonderful!
What You Will Need
Depending on how many favors you have to make, you will buy your amount of white chocolate chip bags. I bought mine from Target. For 30 favors I used about 5 bags.
The large crayon molds I bought online on Amazon. Here is my (affiliate) link to that:
And the 100 count cello bags, 4-inch sticks, and ties I also bought on Amazon. Here is my (affiliate) link to that:
Pour about a cup of white chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and heat it for about one minute (per the bag’s instructions).
Remove from microwave and stir, checking for clumps. If clumps exist, heat again in microwave for 10-second intervals.
Once ready, grab a piping bag or a makeshift bag like mine. I grabbed a sandwich bag. Scoop your white chocolate into the bag.
This is what your favor should look like as of this point.
Next, print your thank you note using any program of your choice, I used Adobe Illustrator. I decided I wanted my thank yous to be in circular form, so I grabbed my EK Success 1.50-inch circle punch that I bought from Amazon here (affiliate):
Once that was done, I grabbed my EK Success 1.75-inch circle punch that I bought from Amazon here (affiliate):
I used my Xyron Create-A-Sticker 1.5-inch to add the adhesive to the backs of my little notes. You can get the one I used on Amazon here (affiliate):
I used my Cricut Expression which is an older model of the cutting machine, but you can get the newest model on Amazon. This machine is such a lifesaver and I love it! I’m saving up for an Explore Air 2. You can get one here (affiliate):
To display the lollipops, I decided I would use an aluminum planter from Dollar Tree. I mod podged it, added silver glitter, then mod podged it again so as to prevent glitter fall out (a real pain!).
Then I hot glued floral foam to the bottom, added blue shredded paper, and then inserted the lollipops until they all fit! To decorate the front of the planter, I used my cricut to cut out the birthday boy’s name!
And here’s what your final project will look like:
