Orange Creamsicle™ Candy Pops

Sweet little candy pops made to look and taste like orange Creamsicles™.

Ingredients

Vanilla Cream Centers:

2
tablespoons butter, softened
2
cups powdered sugar, plus more if needed
2
tablespoons heavy whipping cream or milk
3/4
teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Orange Candy Shell:

8
oz. orange colored confectionery coating/candy melts
1/4
teaspoon orange flavored candy oil

Supplies:

8
small wooden craft sticks

Directions

  • 1 Combine butter, powdered sugar, cream, and vanilla extract in the bowl of a food processor or in a mixing bowl. Mix until it comes together into a ball. Knead in extra powdered sugar if needed until dough is smooth and no longer sticky.
  • 2 Dust a non-stick silicone mat or a smooth cutting board with powdered sugar. Roll candy out into a 7- x 4-inch rectangle about 3/8-inch thick. Cut in half lengthwise, then cut into 14 x 2-inch rectangles. Refrigerate for 20 minutes. Remove and separate the rectangles.
  • 3 Cut one end of each rectangle into a curved edge and flatten just a bit to create a Creamsicle™ shape. Rework the scraps and make two more Creamsicle™ candies. Allow the pieces to dry for 1 hour, then flip over and allow them to dry for another hour.
  • 4 Cut small wooden craft sticks in half, making sure the edges are smooth. Insert the cut end of a craft stick into the flat edge of a vanilla cream candy. Repeat.
  • 5 Pour orange confectionery coating wafers into a microwave safe bowl. Heat on high for 30-second increments, stirring after each, until melted. Stir in orange oil. Dip vanilla cream candies in the melted orange candy coating, then set on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Pop in the freezer until candy hardens, about 5 minutes.
  • 6 Remove and let them get to room temperature before serving.

Sweet little candy pops made to look and taste like orange Creamsicles™.

As prepared by Hungry Happenings,

If you’re a fan of orange Creamsicles™ and love sweet treats, these cute little candy pops are perfect for you!

Each tiny pop has a creamy vanilla candy center and is coated in orange-flavored candy coating. They look and taste like a Creamsicle™, but they’re bite-sized and don't have to be kept in the freezer.

This recipe for these fun sweets was inspired by Elizabeth LaBau's Orange Creamsicle™ Patties recipe.

To create these pops, you first need to make some vanilla cream candy. It's super simple to do: Just mix together softened butter, powdered sugar, cream and some vanilla. It goes really quickly in a food processor, but you can do it with a mixer (or even by hand).

Mix the ingredients until it comes together in a ball. If necessary, knead in some powdered sugar, a small amount at a time, until the candy feels smooth and is no longer sticky.

Liberally dust a non-stick silicone mat or a cutting board with powdered sugar, then roll out the candy into a 7x4-inch rectangle about 3/8 inch thick.

Cut the candy in half lengthwise, then into 14 1x2-inch rectangles.

Pop into the refrigerator for about 20 minutes until the candy is firm enough to hold its shape when picked up. Remove from the fridge and peel the pieces apart. Then cut off one short edge in a curved shape. You can use an oval cookie cutter or a knife. Take all the scraps and either enjoy a little snack or make two more rectangles.

Cut 8 small craft sticks in half and make sure the cut edges are smooth. Then insert the cut ends into the flat ends of the candy centers, creating what looks like white ice pops.

Now the candy needs to dry out a bit before you can easily dip them in candy coating. I suggest leaving them to air dry for an hour, then flipping them over and allowing them to dry for another hour.

When the pops are ready, you can melt your orange candy melts. Pour the candy wafers into a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 second increments, stirring after each, until melted. Then stir in the orange candy oil and you’re ready to dip!

One at a time, dip a candy pop into the orange coating, submerging it completely.

Lift the pop out of the bowl and allow the excess to drip off.

Set the pop on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. I suggest dipping a few pops then placing them in the freezer to harden. You can continue to dip, placing new pops on another baking sheet. Freeze the pops for about 5 minutes, just until the candy coating hardens. If you dip them all before freezing them, the orange candy will develop white streaks and spots. Also, if they stay in the freezer for too long they’ll become sticky.

Allow the candies to get to room temperature before serving.

Tips  

If candy coating is too thick, add a small amount of paramount crystals or shortening to thin it out.
