How to Make Baking Cup Shells


  1. Heat melts in microwave or double boiler as directed on package.
  2. Hold standard baking cup in your hand. Use an angled spatula or Decorator Brush to coat inside of cup with melted Candy Melts®. Coat cup thick enough so that no paper can be seen.
  3. Refrigerate candy on cookie sheet until firm. If you need a more upright cup shape, place the baking cup in a muffin pan for added support, then coat and chill in pan.
  4. Unmold by carefully peeling off baking cup. Now cup is ready to be filled with your choice of filling (candy, dipped fruit, sherbet, ice cream, pudding, peanuts).
  5. ** NOTE **

    Another alternative for a different look is to use a Brioche Pan. Follow the same instructions but without baking cups. When chilled thoroughly, the shell can just be lifted out of the pan ready for your favorite filling.
