"Read My Lips" Valentines
What you need to make "Read My Lips" Valentines:
Prepare your candy mold by placing the candy sticks into the stick compartment. It's entirely okay if the sticks are a bit too long as they will still work just fine.
Fill your saucepan about half way full with hot water and bring to a boil.
Fill your squeeze bottles half way with the candy melts (melt each color separately in it's own bottle).
Take the first squeeze bottle and place it into the boiling water. Turn the bottle slowly until all the chocolate is melted. Note: You will want to be careful as the steam from the boiling water will be hot. If you want you can also melt the chocolates in the microwave but then spoon the melted chocolate into the squeeze bottles. This step just eliminates the extra work.
Once the chocolate is melted, remove from the boiling water and allow to cool for a minute before attempting to squeeze. Once cooled, you can have your kiddos help squeeze the chocolate into the mold filling the cavity entirely.
Repeat for the second color of candy melts.
Once all of your lip cavities are filled in the mold, gently lift and tap against the counter. Doing this will give a nice smooth finish and remove any air bubbles trapped in the bottom of the mold.
Place the entire mold in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes to allow the candy melts to harden.
Once the candy melts have hardened, gently remove them from the mold.
Wrap in the plastic candy bags and tie off with the baker's twine.
