Valentines Twinkies on a Stick

https://i0.wp.com/www.confessionsofacookbookqueen.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/twinkie31.jpg

You’ll need Twinkies and lollipop sticks. You can usually find lollipop sticks at your local craft store.  Sometimes there are two sizes, and you want the longer ones.

You also need white almond bark or candy melts.

Melt the candy coating according to package directions.  Unwrap Twinkies, and dip the sticks about 1/3 of the way in the melted candy.  Insert the sticks in the Twinkies and place on a wax paper lined baking sheet.  When all of Twinkies have sticks in them, place the baking sheet in the freezer for 10 minutes.  This is going to make the sticks stay in the Twinkies instead of sliding out.

If the white candy coating has set up a bit, melt it again in the microwave.  Remove Twinkies from freezer and coat completely in the melted candy.  Tap off the excess, and place back on wax paper lined baking sheet.

Once all the Twinkies are coated, drizzle with additional melted candy melts of your choice.  I used red, pink, and dark chocolate.  You can drizzle with a fork, or put the melted candy in a disposable piping bag with the tip cut off and squeeze it over the Twinkies in a zig zag motion.

Place the pan back in the freezer for about 5-10 minutes until the candy is set.

sugar free pink licorice ♥

To make this sugar-free licorice, combine seven packets of  sugar free strawberry kiwi gelatin powder ( this is what makes it pink! ) and 3/4 of a cup of sugar substitute ( I use Stevia brand)  in a coated nonstick saucepan. Add 1/2 a cup of cold water and stir until the mixture is semisolid and spongy. Place the saucepan over medium heat and stir until the mixture is melted.   The consistency should be similar to thick maple syrup or molasses.

Pour the candy into the prepared baking dish, and shake it back and forth so that it is in an even layer. Place the baking dish in the refrigerator and chill for 30 minutes. Remove the baking dish from the refrigerator, and, with a thin spatula or other thin kitchen implement, remove the candy in one piece from the baking dish onto a flat surface. With kitchen shears, cut the square of candy in half, and then cut each half into 1/4-inch wide strips.  You may if you want twist the strips at both ends to create the traditional licorice spiral. Allow to sit at room temperature until slightly hardened, and serve. ♥(European cutie blogspot)
