Tip for Tuesday - Don't throw that away!

If you've read much of this blog, you know that I'm a big fan of saving things, reusing things, repurposing things, etc. The same is true of my Candy Melts.

When I make cake pops, I almost never guess the right amount of Candy Melts for the number of pops that I'm making. That usually means I have a lot leftover.

So, when I'm finished dipping my pops, I simply spread the extra candy onto a piece of parchment paper.

When it's set, I break it into small pieces to reuse next time I make pops. Store it in a zipper bag, and melt them along with your new melts next time you make cake pops.

I recommend only reheating the melts once or twice. If you reheat them more than that they tend to start to get clumpy.
Doing this also helps me from my least-favorite cake pop cleanup chore-- dealing with Candy Melts that have hardened into the bottom of the mug. Ugh!
