1Marbled Candy Jewels:
a) Add dabs of two colors of melted candies in the mold and swirl with a toothpick. This will create the marble effect.
b) Fill in the rest of the mold with either color.
c) To even out the mold, hold the tray up and drop onto table. Tip: tapping will spread the candy evenly.
2Pearl Dusted Candy Jewels:
a) Add a little bit of water to a decorating brush to dampen it and brush over the top surface of the finished molded candy.
b) Dip another decorating brush into pearl dust and flick it with your thumb to apply dust onto candy.
c) To remove excess, turn upside down and shake.
3Geode Shaped Candy Jewels:
a) Add melted candy into the mold less than halfway. Take a toothpick and cover the area in a swirling motion. With a toothpick spread a thin layer of candy up the sides of the mold. This will help old the rocks in place.
b) Put rock candy in a sealed bag and use a rolling pin to crush it into small pieces.
c) Sprinkle the crushed rock candy on top.
4Chill the candy in the freezer for 10 minutes. Turn the mold over, and twist to loosen.
