Make Your Own Candy Rings

Need a fun idea for a girls night out or a little girls birthday party?  Make candy jewelry…in the form of red rose rings!  My kids love Ring Pops and have collected a few of the empty ring forms hidden away in their “special collection boxes”.  I found a few of them when cleaning out and organizing the kids closets this summer and was tempted to throw them away much to my kids complaints.

And because my mind is always thinking of ways to create and reuse (a curse late at night), I saved them.  Well, it is a good thing that I did because a few days later I remembered a rose candy mold that I had laying around.

I melted some red and pink Candy Melts  (Wilton) that I had leftover from Valentine’s Day and poured them into the candy mold.  Then I placed the now sterilized (through my dishwasher) plastic ring forms into each one of the rose candies.  I popped them immediately into the freezer to help them set up faster.

Within 15 minutes they were ready to go.  My kids immediately asked if they could have one.

Even the boys wanted one…but would not let me take their pictures wearing one…imagine that!  HeHe!  Boys!

The girls LOVED them!  And guess what?  They tasted even better than the real ring pops in my opinion.  And just imagine if I had made them with some real chocolate?  Wouldn’t they be fun for a bridal shower or a girls night out?  Or a little girl’s birthday party?  I know!  Well, since my now 7 year old just had a birthday and it is her year for a friends party…I made some more for her friends.  Look for that post soon!

    Oh my goodness these photos are precious!! You have a gorgeous little girl {and her eyelashes…oh my word! SO jealous! LOL} … I have a fun flower ring that the little girls in my Sunday school class ask to try on every time I wear it. I may just have to surprise them with a “flower ring” of their own :) Thanks so much for sharing this, Amy!

    What a brilliant idea Amy! Great way to reuse those ring pops holder! I have the red & pink chocolate and also that same rose flower mold! And guess what I have in my kids’ Halloween bucket from holiday candies and goody bags? Plenty of Ring Pops! They’re cheap to buy too. The Dollar store sells them in or 3 or 4 pk. I will definitely be trying your idea! Thanks for sharing! I also love how you set up the photo of your ring pop creation with your daughter’s pretty dress, the roses on it matching the ring pop and the pretty red nails too. Perfect!
