Fresh-faced forms make this a great addition to summertime buffets. Use our Dimensions Multi-Cavity Mini Flower Baskets Pan to create candy baskets to fill with crisped rice cereal treats and Dancing Daisy Lollipop Mold cookie pops.
In advance: Mold 7 lollipops per treat using Painting Method. Chill until firm.
Also in advance: Make candy baskets. Spoon 1/4 cup melted candy into basket cavity; immediately brush candy all the way up sides using pastry brush. Chill until firm. Repeat. Chill completely then unmold. Smooth top edge by sliding over warmed Cookie Sheet.
Prepare cereal treat mixture. Let cool to touch. While still soft, press into prepared baskets to within 1/2 in. of top edge. Let cool completely. Insert pops, trimming sticks to vary heights. Tint coconut and sprinkle inside basket.
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.
