The Freshman Cook: Candy Shooting Stars!

On day 4 of our 15 Days of Red, White and Blue series we present Shooting Stars! These candies on a stick are perfect as party favors, centerpieces, or just as part of the party treats!

Shooting Stars

Star Candy Mold

White Candy Melts

Royal Blue Icing

Holiday Red Icing

Wilton Edible Silver Stars

Skinny Sticks

Melt your white candy melts.

I used a spoon to fill the stars, but you can also fill a

plastic bottle with the candy melt, and squeeze

the candy in. Spoon the candy into the center of the star.

Use a toothpick to fill in hard to get to places.

Pull the icing into the star with the toothpick.

Once the star is filled, gently shake the mold across the 

surface you are working on. Don’t lift it up to shake it.

The candy melt will smooth out inside the mold.

Insert the skinny stick into the space designed for it.

I used the skinny stick because it is flat, not pointy

and it looks great too!

Spoon  just a tiny bit more candy melt over the stick

so it is covered. Shake very gently again.

Once all the mold is filled, you can let it set up in the fridge or

at room temperature.

Remove the stars from the mold.

Be gentle when removing your candy. They will pop

out easily.

The star mold I used is from Wilton.

Along with the mold for 4 stars on sticks, it included

2 smaller stars without a stick.

I used the smaller star to stack on top of this star

on a stick.

Then made some zig zag lines across the top in red.

Sprinkle some of the edible silver stars over the top.

Do this while the icing is wet.

Then let dry.
Decorate the other stars the same way. Some red, some blue! Celebrate! Thanks for joining me today! I hope you stop by tomorrow for Day 5 of 15 Days of Red, White and Blue! I apologize for the poor pictures. Just wait until I see that photographer!! 🙂 Here’s where we are partying this week:
