A Wilton Candy Melt Pot is recommended to heat candy melts, but it's okay if you don't own a candy melt pot! You can still make this recipe super simply, just microwave candy melts at 50% for 30 seconds. Stir. Heat at 50% for 30 seconds. Stir. Heat at 50% in 15-second intervals and stir until completely smooth. Do not over heat, otherwise the texture is all wrong! Add blue coloring paste to white candy melts until desired blue is achieved. If candy melts become too thick simply add a touch of coconut oil to thin.

Using a spoon, slowly pour candy melts into each rectangular cavity. Rotate the mold from side to side, ensuring all sides are coated. It’s best to focus on one rectangle at a time. Dip out any excess candy melt. The goal is to create a thin layer. Gently tap mold onto counter top to remove air bubbles. Place mold in freezer for 30 minutes.

Remove candy mold from freezer and add coconut buttercream filling into each circular cavity. Leave enough room for the filling to be covered by the other half of the candy shell.
