White chocolate spring candy pops are perfect to use as a dessert centerpiece or to tuck into an Easter basket.

These easy and adorable white chocolate spring candy pops not only look good but taste good. In the last few years, I’ve found I really enjoy white chocolate. I’m using it more in recipes, like my white chocolate orange pecan scones and winter white hot chocolate to name a few. I choose to use a good white chocolate for a couple of reasons. First, taste and second, a better quality melts better. Trust me on the last part.
I have made candies and bark with strictly candy melts but I really think taste is sacrificed. Plus I think that it’s just too sweet. I prefer to use that good white chocolate and swirl in colored candy melts. Get kids in the kitchen to help make these candy pops. They will have a great time swirling the colors. My teenage boys had fun knowing they could indulge after the photo shoot.
Let’s talk about the cute sprinkles. They are from sponsor Sprinkle Pop. This mixture is called Egg Hunt Sprinkle Mix. The company offers free shipping on US orders and no minimum order. The sprinkle mixes have a long shelf life and are manufactured in the US. My brown sugar pecan Christmas tree cookies use Sprinkle Pop sprinkles too.
These sweet spring candy pops would be a great addition to any Easter celebration. Wrap them up individually for Easter baskets, for a school party treat or as a favor for a spring luncheon with friends.
- 6 ounces white chocolate chips
- ¼ cup pink candy melts
- ¼ cup orange candy melts
- ¼ cup yellow candy melts
- Egg Hunt Sprinkle Mix from Sprinkle Pop
- Candy sticks
- Toothpicks for swirling
- Melt white chocolate chips according to package directions.
- Place each of the candy melt colors in a separate, microwave safe bowl. Microwave according to package directions.
- Place a piece of wax paper on a baking sheet or the counter. Using a spoon make a 3" circle of white chocolate. Place a candy stick about ¼ of the way into the white chocolate and add a bit more white chocolate over the stick to secure it.
- Working quickly, drop a bit of each color over the white chocolate and, using a toothpick, swirl the colors. Quickly sprinkle the Sprinkle Pop Egg Hunt Sprinkle Mix.
- Allow to set, at room temperature, before enjoying. Store in covered container or gently wrap in foil.
It's best to make one at a time. If candy melts harden, microwave a few seconds and stir.
