Root Beer Barrel Shot Glasses
*6 to 8 root beer barrels
*Silicone Shot Glass Molds
*2 bags (10 Ounce each) Root Beer Barrels, Crushed OR any flavor Jolly Ranchers (Purchase the 60 ounce bag for the variety of flavors and colors)
*1/4 or 1/2 baking sheet
Fill each shot glasses with as much crushed Root Beer Barrels as possible.
If using Jolly Ranchers fit at least 6 in each shot glass mold, really push them down into the mold.
Bake in the oven 350*F for 20 minutes checking and making sure not to burn the candy.
Note: Root Beer Barrels will take a little extra work than the jolly ranchers, with the root beer barrels you will need bake/melt for 10 minutes. Then remove the filled candy mold and with good quality silicon hot pads, pick up mold and tap/smack the mold with the melting barrel pieces on the baking sheet to remove any air pockets, press down any loose/melted pieces that are not inside each individual shot glass mold and press them back into the mold with the silicon hot pad. Place back into the oven and in about another 10 minutes check on them and repeat until they are all melted and no longer any air pockets and all the root beer pieces have melted together (It’s nice to have the light silicone shot glass molds so you can tell if there are pockets that the candy hasn’t melted into yet).
Please Note: The root beer barrels are bit more difficult to make but I really wanted to make these root beer shot glasses and fill them with root beer for our Halloween party. The jolly ranchers are the easiest to make and will melt well into the shot glass molds.
