I am 100% sure I am last to jump on this bandwagon for silicone molds, but hello, they are AHHH-mazing! Wilton has a mold for shot glasses and I couldn’t say no. Now I have a million and one ideas on how to use these. However, I made it a point to use them the first time for what they were intended for – shot glasses! Since the mold can be placed in the oven, you can melt hard candy into the most perfect shot glass. I decided to go the chocolate route since I had a bunch of candy melts in my stash, and now for the perfect 4th of July treat!
1| Start by placing candy melts in the mold, pushing them all the way down. The silicone stretches which is totally fine and won’t lose shape. The more the better.
2| Sprinkle in the blue and white sprinkles and top with more candy melts. I piled mine about two to three high. TIP: Set aside a good amount of candy melts because you may need to add more as the chocolate begins to melt.
3| Heat in microwave in increments of 30 seconds. Continue to check on the chocolate, pushing the chocolate down with a spoon to fill any gaps. Add more melts as needed.
4| Once melted, carefully tap the sides to get out the remaining air bubbles.
5| Set aside and carefully pull out once fully hard.
I filled these with 1oz Cake Vodka, 1 oz. Blue Curacao, and 1 oz. Lime Juice, and topped with whipped cream and more sprinkles. Super good.
So do you think these are right up your alley? I love how you can turn a simple shot into an adorable show stopper at the picnic table. Happy 4th of July!
