3 oz Pink Candy Melts
3 oz White Candy Melts
Sprinkles of your choice


1.Melt your candy in the microwave for 20 seconds then remove and stir. (Be sure to use a different bowl for each color of candy). Return candy to the microwave and heat in 15 – 20 secon intervals, stirring in between until candy is completely melted.
