Step one

Put the red candy melts into a microwave-safe bowl. Once added, make certain that you melt them according to the directions on the package.

Step three

Once all the chocolate is added, put them in the Pop the freezer for 5 minutes.

Step four

After five minutes have passed, take them out and gently give the sides a tap. This helps to loosen the chocolate and then you can use your hand to push up on one of the sides then remove the mold.

Step six

Put a plate in the microwave for a few second to make it warm to the touch.

Step seven

Take one of the empty halves of the molds and put it open-faced down on the plate. Hold it there for 10 seconds to melt the edge slightly.

Step eight

Once it has slightly melted, take and press it down on the other half of the filled mold. This should stick them together and seal once cooled.

Step nine

Melt your green and white candy melts in the microwave and put them into a piping bag or use a fork to drizzle on the top. Don’t forget to add on sprinkles.
