Even Mario agrees these are fun and amazingly yummy. My son is always coming home with plastic rings from parties and school. We were starting to have so many that I was trying to think of how we could reuse them. When I saw the candy contest I figured right now would be a perfect time to use them. This Instructable is for the mushrooms and you can find the yoshi on my homepage. Thanks for looking and don't forget to vote for these in the candy and gamer contest. Happy creating!!!
What you need:
1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup water
Cake pop pan
1 mystery white Airhead for each mushroom
1 recycled plastic ring for each pop
Chocolate sprinkles for eyes
Step 1: Making Base
Take 3/4 of the airhead and shape it around ring for the base. Spray your cake pop pan with cooking spray, and use a paper towel to absorb any extra.
Step 2: Making Sucker
Mix the sugar, corn syrup, and water in pan. Heat until 300 degrees on top of the stove in a pan. Then quickly pour half into a glass bowl. Mix lime koolaid into the mixture in the glass bowl, and mix the cherry in the mixture that is still in pan. (This isn't pictured because you have to work fast). Then carefully pour the sucker mixture into greased cake pop pan. Add the ring pop base into the circle. Let cool.
Step 3: Finishing Touches
Carefully remove each sucker from pan. I did this by pressing down on one side of the sucker because if you pull by the ring you risk the chance of the ring coming off. Take the remaining mystery white Airhead and make small circles. Then add the circles to the top of the sucker. Then take two chocolate sprinkles and carefully smash them into the white base for eyes. There you have it, 1 up for a ring pop!!!!
