  1. Place one color of chocolate into a bowl and heat it up in the microwave. Do 20-30 second increments on heat cycles stirring in between each cycle.
  2. Do this until all the chocolate is fully melted. Then pour each color of chocolate into a pastry bag.
  3. On a baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper you will place your straws down. Now, you will cut the tips off the pastry bags, and kind of swirl the chocolate on the top of each straw. (Photo 1)

Common Questions

Can you color white chocolate with food coloring?

Unfortunately, if you add food coloring to your white chocolate it will seize up. That is why you can buy candy melts, as they are perfectly colored and will be a no-fuss option.

What if I don’t own a pastry bag?

If you don’t own pastry bags, don’t feel you have to run to the store. You can easily grab a sealable Ziploc bag. Pour each chocolate in its own bag. Then cut the tip off one side, and use that as a make-shift piping bag.

Alternative to paper straws?

If you do not want to use paper straws, you can easily buy lollipop sticks on Amazon or even at your local grocery store. They are white sticks and work just as well as paper straws.

Can I make these lollipops in advance?

Go right ahead and make these candy lollipops up to two days in advance. Then just store them properly until you are ready to serve them up!

How long will these candy lollipops last?

These lollipops will last up to 2 weeks. Or you can freeze them for up to 3 months. When you remove the chocolate lollipops from the freezer just allow them to thaw a bit, as the chocolate will be pretty hard.
