Valentine’s Mustache Pops

IMG_1526

Last year I volunteered to bring in a special treat for my son’s school Valentine’s Day celebration.  They had a Preschool Valentine’s Ball and all the Dad’s were invited. (Mom’s had to wait for their own event at Mother’s Day)  I decided I wanted to do something different, and as a perfect nod to celebrating the Dad’s, I found this great mustache idea from Blonde Designs.  I made homemade, heart shaped mint chocolate pops and attached little foam mustaches to each stem.   When eating the pop, everyone looked like they were wearing a fake mustache…so cute!

You could easily use the mustaches with store bought lollipops, but I chose to make my own chocolate pops.  Using a Wilton heart shaped mold and mint chocolate candy melts, I easily shaped my own yummy treats.  To keep the pops safe from grubby little fingers, I covered them with individual plastic treat bags and sealed them with scotch tape.

Using a template, we cut out foam mustaches and put a hole in the center of each.  Then we just slid the mustaches on each lollipop stem.
