Minecraft Steve Baby Ruth Pops
- White Candy Melts
- Brown Candy Melts (or milk chocolates)
- Red Candy Melts
- Blue Candy Melts
- Baby Ruth Minis
- Yellow Food Coloring
Heat white and a few red candy melts in the same microwavable dish, using the directions on the package. Mix well and then add not even a whole drop of yellow food coloring. I add this by touching the end of my toothpick in the food coloring and then dipping it in the melted candy.
Note: if you do add to much food coloring it will make your mixture crumbly. You can fix that by adding a few drops of oil (like vegetable or canola).
Now take the Baby Ruths from the wrapper and carefully push them on to the sticks. Then with the back side of a butter knife or spoon coat them with the melted mixture (should be a peach/flesh color). Place upright in a cup and allow to dry. After they have dried coat them again the same way.
Melt a chip or two of the white in another dish. You don’t need much of this one. Use the end of a toothpick and paint on two small squares where eyes would be. Now melt down the brown or milk chocolate. Using another toothpick paint a boxy U where the mouth would be. Also paint on the hair, trying to keep it as squared as possible.
Take a little of your brown and mix with some white, so that you get a lighter shade of brown.
Using a toothpick paint a small rectangle in the center for a nose.
Melt just a chip or two of the blue (or if you don’t have you can use white melts and blue food coloring). On the inside of the white square eyes add square blue ones.
