Chocolate Lollipops

My girls and I made chocolate lollipops today. It was so much fun and they are yummy!

Here's how we did it:

~ 1 bag (11 oz) white chocolate chips
~ Food colouring, your choice (we used pink and yellow)
~ Sprinkles or small candies for decorating
~ Lollipop sticks

Melt the chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl over simmering water on the stove. Takes about 5 minutes. Stir occasionally until melted and smooth.

Colour half of the melted chocolate for decorating (we coloured it all using a couple different colours) by pouring chocolate into a bowl and adding a drop of food colouring.

Spoon tinted chocolate into a baggie or pastry piping bag and secure closed. (I used ziploc bags and just cut the corner off for piping.)

Place filled portion of bag into a small bowl of hot water so chocolate doesn't harden while you fill another baggie with chocolate.

Give each child a small sheet of waxed paper and place a lollipop stick on top. Let each child spoon a dollop of chocolate over the top of the stick. Or use piping bag. Use a spoon to spread the chocolate into a circle or oval. Decorate with a different colour of piped chocolate if you wish.

Decorate with sprinkles and small candy. Let sit and harden or pop waxed paper and lollipops into the fridge to harden. Peel away waxed paper and eat!!
