8:22 am
you will also need a small clean paint brush. first in a microwave safe bowl heat your red candy melts for 30 seconds at a time. stir in between and heat until all of the candy melts are melted and smooth. next put the red chocolate on the back of the spoon and start to coat inside your mold. you can use a round mold that you can get at any bakery supply store or any type of round silicone mold. continue to do this until yo have it completely covered. now set it aside until the first layer solidifies. next do the same thing with the white candy melts. heat in the mic wave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between. use the back of a different or clean spoon to put the white chocolate in different molds. this will be the other half of your pokemon candy ball. you want to set those aside to harden as well. repeat the same step with the red candy melts.
8:23 am
layer of candy melts to make these strong. next repeat with the white candy melts. when your round molds are ready take a knife and even it around the top. gently work them out of the mold. when you put these together you will have your complete ball. there will be some gaps and you might want to take a knife and shave some of it off so it matches up better. now take white melted chocolate, put it in a small clear bottom corner, get the air out, and cut off a small part of the edge. take your first half and put in some candy as well as a pokemon surprise. once it is ready, take the melts in the plastic bag and create a line around the gap. let it settle for a bit and use your finger to wipe off the excess melts. push it in the direction of the whiteside. now, if some of the white gets on the red side, use a wet
8:24 am
if that doesn't work, gently scratch it with a knife. once it has dried use heated black candy melts to make a line around it. dip your paint brush in the chocolate and start making a line. i let it dry before i move it around to the next level. i also like to use a paper towel to keep my fingers from melting the chocolate. now make a circle with the black candy melts. let that dry and then use your white melts to fill in the center of the they open their surprises. a spoon is a great way to crack it open and find all of the candy and, of course, everyone will have a different pokemon go surprise. for more information go to 9news.com/fixthis. >> your son destroyed that
