Ever since I bought my new favorite baking toy, I’ve been looking for new ways to use it! I’m not sure if I can top the Chocolate Chip S’mores Cups but I’m sure going to have fun trying! If you don’t know what I’m talking about, several months ago I saw this in a store and I just had to have it!
I’ve been pretty busy lately but I finally had time to pull it back out to make some Fourth of July treats. Once again I used one of my favorite ingredients, candy melts (I’m so obsessed with these…you can use them for everything!). I started off by trying to make red, white & blue stripes but it was really hard to get them even and the perfectionist in me ditched that idea. I decided to go with a swirly, tie dye look and this time they turned out pretty cool!
I just threw equal amounts of red, white and blue candy melts in a bowl and microwaved them until they were completely melted (they will still keep their shape until you stir them). Then I took a fork and gently pulled it through to make swirls. Don’t swirl too much though or your melts will turn a shade of purple. Spoon the melted candy into your baking cups, tap on the counter to get rid of any air bubbles, then refrigerate for a couple hours.
Fill with whatever treats you’d like. I found these red, white & blue s’mores M&M’s when I was out shopping and they were perfect! How fun is it to eat all the candy, then eat the cup that was holding it?
Hmmm…I wonder what I’ll make next? What yummy treat would you make with these baking cups?
