Ball: Using candy color, tint 1 1/4 pks. of white candy pink and make candy shells using Sports Ball pan halves . Fill pan to the top edge with melted candy. Tap on counter to remove air bubbles. Let chill in refrigerator for 10-15 minutes or until a 1/4 in. shell has formed. Pour out excess candy, smooth top edges with spatula and chill for 15-20 minutes longer. Carefully unmold shells (if you have difficulty removing shells, place in freezer for 2-3 minutes, then unmold). Excess candy can be reheated and used again.
Unmold and quickly slide ball halves over warming tray or warm cookie sheet to level edges.
Immediately seam halves together.
Solid Collar: For solid circle on pacifier,
mold candy plaque, 1/4 in. thick in 6 x 2 in. round pan. Unmold.
Ring Handle: Form a collar from aluminum foil: Fold a 16 x 9 in. piece of foil from long edge, making five folds, then curving to form a piece 5 in. diameter. Tape ends on both inside and outside of foil collar, otherwise candy will seep in and stick.
Pour melted yellow candy 1/4 in. thick into 6 in. round pan. Let set 1 minute, then position 5 in. foil collar in center of 6 in. pan of candy, then place the circle cutter in the center of foil collar. Refrigerate until firm; unmold entire piece.
Press out center circle and remove or break off outer ring. Twist out cookie cutter. Remove foil collar. If necessary, smooth edge of ring on warming tray; flatten bottom of pink ball where collar will attach by sliding across warming tray. To assemble pacifier, place pink ball in a bowl cushioned with a towel. Attach solid yellow plaque with melted candy; let set. Attach ring handle. Set aside.
