A Bowling Party :: Bowling Party Favors

My twins turned seven a few days ago and we’ll be celebrating next week with a bowling party at a local bowling alley.  I’ve been having a great time getting things ready and I’ll be sharing a few of my favorite details over the next few days, then capping it off with the full party post!

Today I want to show you how I made these fun bowling lollipops!

I bought a bowling lollipop mold {affiliate link: CK Products Bowling Pins and Ball Sucker Chocolate Mold} and candy melt in red, white, and dark brown.

To make the details of the mold, I used a small clean paint brush to paint the red lines and tiny white dots on the ball, then placed the mold in the freezer until the candy was solid.  Then I filled the bowling ball with dark brown candy melt and let it solidify as well.

When the first colors were completely firm, I filled the rest of the mold with white candy melt, shook it carefully to disperse it {the warm candy melt will soften the first layers so you need to be careful not to disrupt them when you’re spreading the white layer}, put the lollipop sticks in place, and popped the mold back in the freezer.

They turned out really cute and they’ll make a fun little treat for the partygoers, won’t they?

I wrapped the bowling party favors in pretzel bags, sealed them by wrapping black washi tape around the bag and stick …

… and displayed them in a galvanized tin.
