Here is another use for cookie cutters. I found this out by trying to make candy covered rice krispy treats, the melted, so did the heart marshmallows. I did have a great time making the candy, so I had to do some quick thinking before it hardened and decided to pour the candy into cookie cutters on a silicone mat. I hoped they would release easily after the candy hardened, they did. The candy recipe I used what what I’ve used before to make candy apples, only I used half a recipe.
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup water
red food coloring
Bring sugar, corn syrup and water and food coloring. While stirring bring to a boil. When it reaches 285 degrees, take off of heat and your ready to pour or spoon out.
Very pretty, don’t you think?
Here are the lips I made. I poured the candy into the lip cookie cutter on a silicone mat and waited for it to harden, it doesn’t take long at all. It just has to cool. The silicone mat I used has a grid texture, next time I’d use a smoother mat. I rinsed it off and some of the candy melted so it got rid of the texture, once it was dry I placed it on the cupcake.
