MINECRAFT CANDY POPS – NERDY NUMMIES


Hey guys, it’s Ro! Welcome to another Nerdy Nummies! Today we are going to be making something
very fun. You guys really like those Snicker Pops that I made last week, and I’ve
been getting a lot more requests for something Minecraft. You guys love Minecraft! And, we have done something Minecraft in the
past, but, I had to show you this recipe because it is so easy. It’s really
good for birthday parties, or if you have a Minecraft themed party. So let’s get started! The things you will need, will be: Mini sized
candy bars, you can get them any kind you’d like. Here I’ve got Snickers,
Milky Ways, Musketeers, you want the mini size because they are square. Not the
fun size, which is rectangle, or the bite size which is smaller, these are the
perfect size! You will also need pink melting chocolate,
red melting chocolate, brown melting chocolate, green melting chocolate,
black melting chocolate, and a little bit of white melting chocolate, to
blend it. And, lollipop sticks, some skewers or a toothpick
to poke the hole in our candy, and a piece of styrofoam to help our candy
pops dry. Alright, let’s put it all together! The first thing that you’re gonna do is
unwrap all of your candies, and one for me! Mmmm-hmmm-hmmm-hmmmm! Now you’re gonna take your… Oh geez! Now you’re gonna take your kabob stick,
or your toothpick, take one of your candies, and what I do is I just spin, spin, spin,
spin, make a hole right in the middle. You want to push it about 3/4 of the way down. Then you’re gonna take a lollipop stick,
dip it into a little bit of melted chocolate, I just heated some up
over here. And then, stick it right in there, twist,
twist, twist, twist, twist! There you go! Just like that. And then I’m just sticking them on top of
a cookie sheet with a piece of wax paper. And we’re gonna do this to the
rest of our candies, then put them in the freezer for about 10 minutes to
chill. Now we’re going to dip them into chocolate,
I have melted the brown chocolate and poured it into a cup because it just makes
it easier to dip. The first things that we’re gonna make are
the grass blocks. So, you’re just gonna take a pop, dip it
straight down until it touches the lollipop, and then pull it straight up. Then you’re gonna let the excess chocolate
drip off, give it a little jiggle. Once you’ve got it dipped, you’re just
gonna stick it over here in the foam to let it dry. Now I’m gonna do that to
a few more of my pops. I waited about 5 minutes for the chocolate
to harden, chocolate dries really quickly, I love working with it! And so what I’m gonna do now, is I’ve
heated up a little bit of green chocolate, and I’m just going to dip the tip to make
it look like a grass block. And again, just let the excess green chocolate
drip off. And then to be fancy for details, you don’t
have to do this, but I’m taking a mini little paint brush, and I’m just gonna
dip it into the chocolate and paint on some little squares on the front. Since we’ve already got our green melting
chocolate heated up, now we’re gonna make the creeper facesssssssssssssss. I’m sorry, that was a Minecraft joke! OK, now to make some creepers! Same thing, you’re just gonna dip it in
until the green hits the lollipop. Pull it straight up, let the excess green
drip off, then you’re just gonna do this to as many creeper faces as you want
to make! Just melted the red chocolate, and now we’re
gonna make some TNT blocks! Wait till the red touches the lollipop stick,
and then pull it out. Now you’re just gonna do that to the rest
of your TNT blocks. Last but not least I just melted the pink
melting chocolate to make little Minecraft piggies. And you can make whatever
designs you’d like, these are just the ones that I’m making today, but you
can make anything! The little, the little chickens, or the little
sheep, whatever you’d like. I just melted the pink melting chocolate to
make little Minecraft piggies. Same deal, you’re just gonna dip them in
until the chocolate hits the pop. And now we’ve got all of our candy bar pops dipped, we’re going to decorate! This is one of my favorit things! So in my hands I’ve got green and black
AmeriColor writing gourmet pens, they’re edible ink! So, first we are going to decorate our green
pops, to look like the creeper faccccccccccccce! Now to decorate our TNT block, all you’re
gonna need to do is, heat up a little bit of your white melted chocolate,
and get one of your little paint brushes again. And then you’re just going
to paint a strip all the way across the top. Then you’re gonna take your
black edible pen and write TNT on top once the chocolate has dried. Last, but not least, we’re gonna be making
the Minecraft piggies, we’re gonna be using white and black chocolate for the eyes,
and then we’re gonna be taking a little paintbrush, and using a little bit
of pink food coloring to make the little pixels. Nom-nom-nom-nom-nom! Ta-da! Here are the Candy Bar Minecraft Pops that
we made today, they were so fun and easy! Just perfect for parties! I designed 4 of them, but you can pick anything
that you’d like. I did creeper faces, Minecraft pig, grass
blocks and TNT. But you can make little sheep, or cake, or little chickens, whatever
you’d like! And, this is a really fun idea for displaying
them, if you don’t want to leave them on this big foam block. I just took a glass cup, filled it with Jelly
Beans, and you just, take your little candy pop, and you just wiggle him
in there. Boop! Oooooooh it’s so cute! I will be posting lots of pictures of these
candy pops on my Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter and Instagram. And if you guys make these or any of your
own versions, please send me the pictures, I love to re-blog them and post
them, I just get a big kick out of seeing your baking creations. And, if you have any suggestions of what you’d
like me to make next, please leave me a comment down below and I will do my best
to make it happen! Alright, thanks again you guys! Bye-bye! Tap-tap-tap-tap-tap-tap-tap. Tap-tap-tap-tap-tappy-tap-tap! Tap-tap-tap-tap-tappy-tappy-tap! Tap-tap-tap-tap-tappy-tappy-tap! Tap-tap-tap-tap-tappy-tappy-tap!
