This handsome herd won?t last long. Guests will quickly gobble these critters that combine candy heads shaped in our Animal Cookie Candy Mold and candy-coated brownie bodies baked in our Brownie Pops 8-Cavity Silicone Mold.
In advance: Make candy heads. Tint portions of melted white candy black, gray, pink, orange and yellow using candy colors. Mold candies 1/4 in. thick in mold without cookies, using painting method. Chill until firm. Pipe eyes, mouth and inner ears using cut parchment bags. Reserve remaining tinted candy.
Bake and cool brownies in silicone mold supported by cookie sheet. Cover with melted candy. Chill until firm; repeat. Tint portions of fondant gray, yellow and brown. Roll a 5/8 in. ball for each leg and arm; shape 3/4 in. long legs and arms. Attach with melted candy. Roll a 1/2 in. fondant ball to support head and attach with melted candy.
Adding color details to candies makes them more realistic and much more fun! For large areas of color, it's best to paint the melted candy right in the mold before the whole candy is molded using a decorator brush. Or, for very small details like vines, mouths and messages, melted candy should be piped onto molded candies using a parchment bag with a small hole cut in the tip.
