Sugar Stamps - Candy Melt Confections and Cookies

I've been playing with my adorable Sugar Stamp samples!  Some experiments worked beautifully!  Some didn't.

Here's what worked perfectly.....

Adorable, huh?  All I did was heat bright white candy melts in the microwave, in a piping bag.

I piped rounds of the chocolate onto the round designs.

I also piped all over the surface of one of the background sheets to make bark. Then sprinkled the top with some colored sanding sugar.  Update:  New bark tutorial here.

Then I free-hand piped a few hearts over the background sheet.

Pop them in the fridge for a few minutes. After that, the round candy melts with the designs popped right off.

I broke up the all over melts to make bark.

How stinking cute!!  It took minutes to do.  Mere minutes!

Imagine those little rounds in favor bags!  Or as cupcake toppers!!  Or around the side of a cake!!  Yes, I'm excited by the possibilities!

Next experiment....the candy melts in molds....

I cut the round designs from the sheets to separate them.  Then placed them over the warm chocolate in the molds.  (Don't be like me and over fill the molds!  I realized later that I should have under-filled them.)

 Eep!  Yes!  Success!

Now I'm imagining lollipops or chocolate covered oreos!

Next experiment....Candy melts on sugar cookies....

I piped warm candy melts all over the cookies then flipped them over onto the Sugar Sheets.

Into the fridge for a few minutes.  The result was mixed.  The design transferred beautifully!  (Except for the cookie over on the right below.  The melts were cooling down at that point.  Now we know that we have to keep the melts warm!)

I didn't like the messy edges of the chocolate.  I wanted it to be crisp.

So onto plan B.  Pipe the warm candy melts over the surface of the Sugar Stamps.  Smooth with an offset spatula.

Let it cool for just a few minutes.  Cut with cookie cutters.

Attach to the cookies with more candy melts.  (Use less than I did!  There was a bit of oozing that needed to be cleaned up.)

Pretty stinkin cute!!  Nice, crisp edges.  Perfect design transfer!

Update:  Check out this post on my next experiments with candy melts and sugar cookies and this post for cookies with royal icing.

I am thrilled beyond belief with the candy melt possibilities!
