Let your tricky little guests pick their own treats. Bobbing For Bats is a fun way to hold and display individual lollipops you?ve made using Wilton Candy MeltsR, candy colors and spooky Halloween candy molds.
Several days in advance, make arm and hand: Add 1 teaspoon of Gum-Tex to 12 oz. of fondant. Tint small portions green and black, tint remaining mixture brown.
Roll out green fondant and cut hand; turn hand over and fold fingers over in position shown (cut between each finger if needed to elongate). Press small pieces of black fondant into nail area; score knuckles with knife.
Roll out brown fondant and cut arm using pattern. Let arm and hand dry thoroughly, in a dark area.
Using candy colors, tint portions of melted white candy black (mix red and blue), and yellow.
Mold a variety of lollipops using painting method; refrigerate until firm.
Cut craft block to fit cauldron and wrap with foil.
Arm and hand are two separate pieces: Attach 113/4 in. lollipop stick to back of hand with melted candy; cut a second stick in half and attach to back of arm.
Cut stick on 1 bat candy to 2 in. and attach to hand with melted candy.
Insert arm, hand and lollipops in cauldron.

Screamingly easy and something the kids love to help make. The Halloween candy molds and easily-melted Candy Melts make you the coolest, scariest Mom or Grandma ever. The pre-made fondant makes it all a snap, and you get the leftover candy melts. (Good luck with that!) Just plan ahead to do a little each day and save the final assembly for the day of your Halloween party or event. I couldn't find all green gumballs, but I did find malted milk balls to drizzle with green Candy Melts instead.
